A Proffessor at John Hopkins, Michael Griffin has been chosen to be the new Administrator of NASA. Griffin worked for NASA before in the 1990's
giving him experience in NASA. His qualifications make him a great addition to the Bush Administration, with his past works at the Orbital Sciences
Corporation and In-Q-Tel made him a top choice for the Bush Administration.
President George W. Bush has nominated Michael D. Griffin to become the next administrator of NASA. Griffin currently heads the space department at
Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
Griffin, 55, is no stranger to NASA. In the 1990s, he served as chief engineer and associate administrator for exploration at NASA headquarters. He
has also held various positions in the aerospace industry, including several posts within Orbital Sciences Corp. and president and chief operating
officer of In-Q-Tel—a nonprofit group funded by the CIA.

Ok, Bush has been interested in space for awhile, and has not hidden his intrest. One of the few things money has been spent on besides War, NASA
and the Space Exploration has been a key part of Bush's goals. Earlier in his first term he made it clear he wished to get man back to the moon and
maybe even try for Mars, and this is a step in the right direction after the hard hits NASA took with the loss of Columbia.
