NASA Taps Space Science Chief
16 November 1998 8:00 pm
WASHINGTON, D.C.--NASA administrator Daniel Goldin today filled a prominent science job at the agency left in limbo since last February, naming Edward Weiler as associate administrator for NASA's Office of Space Science. Weiler, who has served as acting administrator since late September, when his predecessor Wes Huntress stepped down, will now oversee investigations into extraterrestrial life, the origins of the solar system, and the day-to-day workings of NASA's space science program. The popular Huntress announced his surprise resignation last winter.
NASA scientists are giving Weiler a warm welcome. "Ed Weiler will be a very effective champion for space science," says Scott Hubbard, deputy director of space at the Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. Weiler's accomplishments include, among other things, injecting new energy into NASA's astrobiology program and leading the Hubble Space Telescope recovery mission.
