The Truth About Professional NASA Hater Alex Roland

20 December 2004: Professor Grinch, Space Review

"[Alex] Roland is always cited as a "former NASA historian," which supposedly lends weight to his comments. However, the reality is that Roland last worked as a NASA historian in 1981. Yes, you can be a "former" something forever, but two decades is starting to stretch things. A review of social science databases does not reveal any scholarly publications by Roland on the subject of human spaceflight in the past decade other than a few book reviews."
