NASA Exec Leading Moon Mission Quits Just Weeks After Appointment: NASA executive Mark Sirangelo, tasked with leading the strategy to return U.S. astronauts to the moon, has stepped down just six weeks after his appointment.
Now I’m no rocket scientist, but my guess is he and Trump must have clashed over Trump’s plan to go with coal-powered rockets. Anyway, after Sirangelo resigned, Trump told reporters "Nobody knew space travel could be so complicated.”
One thing’s for sure, Trump sure doesn’t seem to have much luck keeping his appointees. I mean, its pretty sad when the turnover of Trump staffers is worse than at Burger King.
That said, who can blame the poor guy for resigning? I mean, how you supposed to work on a space mission alongside Trump appointees who despise science, think the earth is flat and that all the prior moon missions were staged in Hollywood?
