Editor's note: Multiple sources also report that Mike Griffin (with the prompting of his special helper Marcia Ivins) was not at all happy with what he was told about Orion and Ares 1 progress as discussed at the Integrated Stack Technical Interchange Meeting last month - especially with regard to the path Skip Hatfield was taking things. So, in the time honored NASA tradition of shooting the messenger, Hatfield was reassigned to that new "Special Assistant job" i.e. Mike Griffin had him fired from his Orion job. NASA ESMD PAO has not responded to any of the questions I have sent them on this topic. Stay tuned.
