According to reports, NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot will retire at the end of April.
The news surfaced after reporters received a memo from a space policy analyst.
Lightfoot has served as the Acting Administrator of NASA since the beginning of President Donald Trump's presidency, succeeding Charles Bolden, who was appointed during the Obama administration.
Lightfoot was suppose to serve in the role until the Senate confirmed Congressional Representative Jim Bridenstine, who was appointed by Trump.
Bridenstine was nominated last September by the White House, but his confirmation has been held up by senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio.
They have both expressed their preference for a space professional to lead NASA.
