Reinventing Past Facts

Editor's note: John Logsdon has a well written Op Ed titled "The Road Ahead for NASA" in the 17 January 2005 edition of Space News. The article makes some good observations and is well worth reading. Logsdon's affiliation with George Washington University and his service on the CAIB are mentioned at the bottom of the article. Curiously, even as he mentions a variety of recent political influences within his piece, he neglects to mention that he spent most of 2004 as a space advisor to the Kerry campaign.

Both of these developments were surprisingand arguably unprecedentedpolitical victories for fragile new space enterprises seeking support from the US Congress in an especially partisan election year."
