Obama’s NASA Administrator List Thinning With Appointments March 22, 2009

Posted by Nick Azer in African-American History, NASA, Obama.

The candidate list for the new NASA Administrator (previous being Mike Griffin, who has since begun working on starting GriffinSpace, LLC) under President Obama has been thinning as of late through various appointments.

Scott Gration, originally thought a leading contender, was recently posted as envoy to Sudan; and now today, other leading candidate Steve Isakowitz has been reappointed to his current role as the CFO of the Department of Energy.

This leaves two candidates, barring any dark horses: Lester L. Lyles, and Sen. Bill Nelson‘s favorite, Charles Bolden–a former astronaut and Deputy Administrator nominee.

To keep up on all the latest skinny on NASA’s internal goings-on, I highly recommend two great blogs that cover the subject well: Space Politics and NASA Watch :)
