Under President George Bush, the previous board leaned heavily on business leaders, including now Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz and representatives from Lockheed Martin, EMC, Verisign. Bob Herbold, former executive vice president at Microsoft, also was a member.

Obama announced the new members during an address at the National Academy of Sciences today.
