. . . from my immediately preceding post where someone was definitively established to be NOT a rocket scientist, to someone who has been definitively established to be a rocket scientist.
Dr. Pat Santy of Dr. Sanity has the excellent post up to which I have just provided you the link in the title to this post and in the preceding sentence.
I'm not the optimistic sort by nature, but I want Dr. Sanity's first alternative outcome to be the true one. [Perhaps some of the positive optimism on her blog is rubbing off the more I read it.]
For all these reasons, many people at NASA--particularly the more incompetent, change-resistant managers, invested in the old way of doing business--will hate his guts and do everything in their power to obstruct him. If Griffith is truly "the chosen one" --who will make the necessary changes in NASA culture that will restore balance to the tension between science, technology, business and government and ignite a revolution in space exploration--then he very possibly could become one of the most pivotal and important NASA Administrators we've had in a long, long time.We can only hope and pray for the best to come true.
You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.
