Keith's note: Word has it that Steve Cook has resigned from NASA and will be working for Dynetics in Huntsville. I am awaiting a formal NASA PAO response.

Keith's update: NASA PAO has confirmed Cook's departure.

NASA MSFC Internal Memo: Steve Cook Resignation

"The progress we have made clearly shows that the Ares team continues to deliver on the promises made 4 years ago - to develop the safest and most affordable launch system family we could field to enable the exploration of space while minimizing the gap in human space flight. We are building on the best of the last 50 years of space flight and marrying it with the most modern systems available today. It is with the backdrop of these accomplishments that I am writing to tell you that after long and prayerful consideration, I have decided to depart NASA after 19 years of service. I have wrestled with making this decision for the past year and the time has come for my transition."

Steve Cook Wants to Be The Next Deputy Center Director at Marshall, earlier post

Keith's note: Steve Cook departs NASA on 31 August. After that, unless he makes a point of getting himself in the news in a way that is related to NASA or has NASA-related responsibilities in his new job, he will not find himself on NASA Watch. That's how it works.
