Bolden and Garver's Qualifications

Nominees for the Space Agency, editorial, NY Times

"Unfortunately, General Bolden lacks deep expertise in space science and engineering and his past ties with the aerospace industry will raise conflict of interest problems."

Blog response to May 28 New York Times Editorial by Coalition Advisory Board Member Fred Gregory, Coalition for Space Exploration

"I was disappointed to see a recent New York Times editorial (May 28, "Nominees for the Space Agency") that questioned President Obama's selection of Charles Bolden, Jr. and Lori Garver as NASA's top leaders. Both Bolden, a former astronaut and retired Marine general, and Garver, a NASA policy specialist, have proven their abilities to lead. The real question is whether they will have the necessary resources to address the tough work of transitioning from the space shuttle to Constellation, the next generation of spaceflight vehicles to the moon and beyond."
