Astronaut Steve MacLean has been named president of the Canadian Space Agency, taking over from Guy Bujold, who was acting on an interim basis.

MacLean, one of the first six Canadian astronauts selected in December 1983, was a key contributor on both the Canadarm and the Canadarm2 projects. He has held other positions including chief science advisor for the International Space Station, director general of the Canadian Astronaut Program, as well as positions with NASA.
