Stealthy Changes to NASA Advisory Council

Keith's note: More than two months ago I posted news that NASA Advisory Council chair Steve Squyres had sent an email to the NAC and to NASA resigning as chair of the NAC. NASA never publicly announced Squyres' departure, never publicly thanked him for his service, etc. How creepy is that?. Now we quietly find out that Ken Bowersox is the "interim chair" of the NAC. Again, no public announcement from NASA. Who cares, I guess.

There is a meeting planned for next week 28-29 July in Cleveland. Charlie Bolden is on constant travel - often international - doing a victory lap/farewell tour - with Dava Newman doing much the same (other than photo ops that's all she has ever really done at NASA). As such, one has to ask what value-added the NAC has these days since there is no one home on the 9th floor at NASA HQ to pay attention to the NAC.
