Ashes to Ashes

Big things afoot at NASA:

A massive reorganization has begun at NASA. NASA Administrator Mike Griffin has begun the process by sending out formal notices to more than 50 senior NASA managers aprising them of pending changes in their job titles.

One person has already resigned. Associate Administrator for NASA’s Exploration Systems Mission Directorate, Adm. Craig Steidle, tendered his resignation today effective 24 June 2005.

Changes will occur across all of the agency’s activities – except human space flight – those changes come later after both the STS-114 and STS-121 missions have been completed.

Waaaay past due, if you ask me.
