    Marshall has apparently been given the overall lead on the lander program, with Johnson Space Center (which handled the Apollo lander program) to handle the ascent module only

    A reelection campaign for Trump event. He will mention Trump at least 20 times. I quit watching because of this. Gerst was the only one that did not do it and he got demoted. Gerst is just making time to get his pension. Maybe he can take over that launcher company(Garvey?) that just laid off everyone. There ought to be some investors that would like to try that.

      I’m guessing there won’t be any bunting, balloons or MAGA hats. Not everything done by a presidential appointee is automatically also a campaign rally for his boss.

      Anyway, Pence is the guy who tends to mention Trump a lot. Bridenstine, not so much.

      If there are investors out there dumb enough to pay for Gerst to be put in charge of anything, well, all I can say is a fool and his money…
