Christopher Shank worked for Nasa is a House Science Committee staff member and US Air Force member and is Trump's pick to head Nasa agency's transitional team.
He is expected to increase collaboration with the Military.


President-elect Donald Trump has named a former NASA employee, House Science Committee staff member, and U.S. Air Force member to head the space agency’s transition team.

Christopher Shank, who has served important roles at NASA, will lead the transition team for America’s space agency and is expected to help increase collaboration with the military.


What is Trump's plan? He wants to promote a public-private partnership and transform NASA from an earth monitoring agency to a devoted space exploration agency.


Trump has gone on record saying he wanted to promote the public-private partnership in space and transform NASA from an earth-monitoring agency to one devoted to space exploration. The president-elect has given NASA the lofty goal of exploring the outer reaches of the solar system by the end of the century, but he may also be looking to counter the rise of China in space.

The country is committing enormous national resources to its military-backed space program and has already put its second space station into orbit and beaten NASA to the invention of space GPS for interplanetary travel.

Excellent. Now we need to restore funding to NASA. Absolute travesty that the funding was ever cut.

ETA: S&F for the good news.

The story talks about the military and NASA working closer together. I imagine that they are already pretty tight. I think this will be a militarization of space. This is the next logical step in the arms race with China and Russia. And boy howdie is it going to be expensive.
But we may get to look at another planet too.

Nice! Hopefully we can get our space shuttle up and running again instead of having to hitch a ride.

Taking NASA back to what it was supposed to be is excellent news.

Do Trump haters have something bad to say about this?

The shuttle program is the reason we pay the Russians uber fares to take us to space.
Let's hope for something better this time round..

Waste of money

Do you really think they quit space race in 1969?

Once Trump leearns, if Trump learns above space program, he would cancel that

Anyone think there are already specs drawn up for a new improved shuttle?
Makes one wonder when its heard there are already space wars going on over our little heads. ( All Hearsay of course). Sounds like the military is already up there. This could just be a green light to roll more things out that we have already had around for awhile, but it will "look" new to us.

Part of me really wishes Nasa could just stay on the scientific side of things, but I suppose the military is a necessary evil to be involved as well.

I am confused but isn't NASA currently exploring space as well as monitoring Earth to learn more about planets? Or is this one of those conservatives don't know what NASA actually does and assumes it does things wrong because DEMs have been in the White House for a 8 years?

After I read your post I could not get this scene from Interstellar out of my mind.
The setting is that NASA was once part of the military. But doesnt exist anymore officially. Only in secret.

I heard they shut you down sir, for refusing to drop bombs from the stratosphere on the starving people.
