George Nield, acting AST chief

I see no announcement or notice on FAA/AST's website but Patti Smith confirms via e-mail that, no surprise, deputy associate administrator Dr. George C. Nield will step in as AST acting associate administrator, as of Feb. 1, 2008.

And yes, George will be officiating at next month's big AST event, the
11th FAA Annual Commercial Space Transportation Conference: Roadmap to 2015, Feb. 5-6, 2008, Crystal City, Virginia. Here's the agenda. Look forward to seeing George there!

(And if you can't wait to hear George talk, here is a great
podcast of his most recent appearance on The Space Show, last July.)
