PR Shock at NASA

If you have a moment, please try to learn more about George C. Deutsch, a NASA public affairs professional who recently resigned.

According to CNN and other new sources, Deutsch alledgedly tried to limit reporters access to climate change scientist James Hansen. Deutsch also alledgely tried to make sure a webdesigner at NASA inserted the word "theory" with any mention of the "Big Bang."

Said NASA administrator Michael Griffin, "The Job of the Office of Public Affairs.... is to convey the work done at NASA to our stakeholders....It is not the job of public affairs officers to alter, filter out, or adjust engineering or scientific material produced by NASA technical staff."

Deutsch attend Texas A&M University but did not graduate from the university.
