"Keith Cowing, who runs the blog NASA Watch, said Hinners was a reader of his website and would post comments. He called him "one of the last of a certain breed" of NASA scientists from the early days of space exploration programs. "He had one foot firmly placed in the old NASA and one in the new NASA," Cowing said. Hinners worked a variety of positions at NASA, Cowing said. "He did everything you could do in and around NASA once," Cowing said."

"At the Greenbelt facility, he showed his adherence to the doctrine of management by walking around and visiting scientists and others at their jobs. This included working with the maintenance crew on a night when a snowstorm had left Washington roads impassible. Not one to fear getting his feet wet -- or cold -- Dr. Hinners joined in snow plowing operations on the Goddard grounds, and learned, he said, that "there's an art to it."
