Bush names physicist, space fan to run NASA
President Bush on Friday nominated Michael D. Griffin, a physicist and engineer who is a strong advocate of human space flight, to lead the National Aeronautics and Space Administration as it tries to revive the shuttle program and return humans to the moon.
As a top official at In-Q-Tel, he helped invest about $45 million a year in federal money to develop technology for intelligence use. Griffin had run day-to-day operations and helped steer investments beyond information technology into biotechnology, nanotechnology and materials sciences.
