Griffin Addresses Scientific Openness

Has NASA's press office gone too far?, Nature

NASA Internal Memo: Message From the Administrator - Scientific Openness

"I want to make sure that NASA employees hear directly from me on how I view the issue of scientific openness and the role of public affairs within the agency. First, NASA has always been, is, and will continue to be committed to open scientific and technical inquiry and dialogue with the public. The basis for this principle is codified in the Space Act of 1958, which requires NASA to "provide for the widest practicable and appropriate dissemination of information concerning its activities and the results thereof."

Editor's note: It is good that Mike Griffin sent this out. I am, however, utterly confused as to why it was not released to the media and general public - where the NASA credibility issue remains unaddressed.

Editor's note: 4 Feb Update: NASA has now posted Griffin's message on its main website.
