Thread: Trump's NASA pick

    Trump's NASA pick

    The White House announced on Thursday that President Trump picked James Morhard, who currently serves as the Senate's deputy sergeant at arms, for the deputy administrator post at the U.S. space agency.

    Morhard has a long career in Washington, including stints as the staff director for the Senate Appropriations Committee and a job in the Secretary of the Navy's Office of the Comptroller.

    But absent from his resume is experience in space operations.

    Do you know what an "administrator" is?

    HINT: it's a very different job than "astronaut" with a completely different skill set.

    Bridenstine offered his endorsement of Kavandi after being asked about the status of the deputy administrator position, which has been vacant since the beginning of the Trump administration last January. He said the position is critical given the number of major development activities, including commercial crew, the Space Launch System and Orion, in progress.

    “It needs to be somebody who has a lot of space experience, a space professional,” he said. “It needs to be somebody who has run large organizations, who understands the technology. A scientist would be great.” Kavandi has a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from the University of Washington.

    Another attribute, he added, is someone who is “apolitical,” a reference to Bridenstine’s own contentious confirmation process. “We want it to be bipartisan,” he said. Kavandi was at Bridenstine’s speech but didn’t comment publicly on her interest in the position.
