More on the Obama Transition Team at NASA….

Ferris Valyn takes a closer look at the Obama NASA transition team, delving into the backgrounds and experience of leaders Lori Garver and Roderic Young and their support cast of Edward Heffernan, George Whitesides, and Alan Ladwig. He also looks at the space views of some of the other officials in the next administration. Valyn writes:

“It is worth noting that while many people within the transition team are former NASA employees, much more interesting, and important, is that many are proponents of Cheap and reliable Access To Space (CATS), a majority are members of the CATS coalition, and some are proponents of NewSpace, or work for NewSpace companies. Could this be a foretelling of the direction of Obama’s Space Policy? I would like to think so.”
