New NASA Chief: Rocket Scientist
Michael D. Griffin, whom President Bush yesterday nominated to head NASA, has a fair amount of book learnin’:
He received a bachelor’s degree in Physics from Johns Hopkins University; a master’s degree in Aerospace Science from Catholic University of America; a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Maryland; a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California; a master’s degree in Applied Physics from Johns Hopkins University; a master’s degree in Business Administration from Loyola College; and a master’s degree in Civil Engineering from The George Washington University.
I hope he gets an office with a big wall.
