Trump’s NASA pick demonstrates how out of touch he is

the Trump administration looks to finally appoint a NASA head, Republican Congressman Jim Bridenstine, a politician who you will be unsurprised to learn has no background in science and doesn’t accept man as the key driving factor of climate change. Bridenstine has also clearly pushed the idea that NASA should drop “expansion of human knowledge of the Earth and of phenomena in the atmosphere and space” from its mission statement, instead diverting its attention to what he terms ‘space architecture’, commercial and military interests.

We shouldn’t expect too much from someone whose moral compass was calibrated in the newsroom of Kelvin Mackenzie at the Sun in the late 1980s.
