Steve Cook Update

Dynetics Hires Steve Cook as Director of Space Technologies

"Prior to serving as project manager for Ares, Cook was deputy and acting director of the Space Transportation Programs, deputy manager of the Next Generation Launch Technology/Advanced Space Transportation Program and a member of Systems Engineering and Management at Marshall Space Flight Center. "I have been honored and privileged to work with the best-of-the-best in the aerospace industry over the past 19 years," Cook said. "NASA has graciously allowed me to pursue dreams of exploration that I have had since my passion was ignited watching Apollo 17 land on the moon. That said, my professional goal has long been to spend the first half of my career in public service and the last half in the private sector. On Sept. 14, I will begin phase 2 of my career, as Director of Space Technologies at Dynetics in Huntsville, Ala. I look forward to helping the Dynetics team take on the challenges associated with space flight."

What does Cook's resignation mean?, Orlando Sentinel

"How should the space community interpret Steve Cook's decision to resign as head of NASA's troubled Ares program? One view, common to this blog and others, contends that Cook is leaving a sinking ship. Ares faces financial troubles, technical challenges and little support from a presidential panel tasked with examining the future of human spaceflight in the United States."
