Ex-Ecliptic Board Member Mike Griffin Nominated for NASA Administrator

2005 Mar 11

Today ex-Ecliptic Board member Mike Griffin was nominated by President Bush to be NASA Administrator. See various on-line press reports at SpaceToday.net.

Griffin joined Ecliptic's Board in February 2002 and contributed in many ways to the evolution and growth of the company until taking a new position as head of APL's Space Department in April 2004.

Ecliptic's employees and Board strongly support Mike's nomination and believe he is the right person to lead NASA at this time.

Note for March 14: An excellent summary of Mike's background and his views on the vision and goals for NASA appears at The Space Review.
