16 December 2004: Analysis: O'Keefe's exit may save Hubble, UPI

"The timing of NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe's sudden announcement Monday that he was resigning from the space agency to return to the academic world suggests his reasons were more complicated than he stated in public."

Editor's note: Here we go again. Yet another story by a reporter about what he thinks he knows as opposed to what he actually knows. I wonder if he has ever even discussed this topic with Sean O'Keefe. Perhaps he will ask him about this at Friday's press event. Every day I get complaints from NASA Watch readers about the toll their job has taken on them and their families. Why is it so hard to accept the fact that a parent can make their family a priority above the direction other people think their career should take - just because that parent happens to be the Administrator of NASA?
