Who is NASA's Chief Scientist?

Editor’s note: This short note appeared on the GSFC Sciences and Exploration Directorate website dated 28 Sept 2005: “Meet Goddard’s new Chief Scientist Dr. James Garvin returns to Goddard as the Center’s new Chief Scientist. Welcome back Jim!”

Of course, since Mike Griffin has told people “just call me Spock”, it is logical that he’d take the Chief Scientist role on himself (see Scotty: I Need That CEV in 2010 Or We’re All Going to Die!). Curiously, HQ still lists Jim Garvin as the agency’s Chief Scientist.
