Lightfoot to get long Marshall interim term, Huntsville Times

"I'd say Robert Lightfoot should probably be getting comfortable in his role as acting Marshall director," said Keith Cowing, who runs the space agency watchdog Web site "A center director position is generally appointed, with input from Congress, by the NASA administrator, but being that there is no permanent NASA administrator, this is a sort of unique time. "Even if a person was named to take over Marshall it could be months before that nominee is approved. Lightfoot is in charge for some time."
