NASA Head Calls for "Scientific Openness"

To follow up on my post from earlier in the week about stifled science at NASA, the NYTimes reports today that Michael Griffin, the current NASA administrator, has issued an email statement to the agency's employees urging "scientific openness." Griffin writes "It is not the job of public-affairs officers to alter, filter or adjust engineering or scientific material produced by NASA's technical staff," continuing "NASA has always been, is and will continue to be committed to open scientific and technical inquiry and dialogue with the public."

Good for Griffin. Now stand let's hope he stands by his words.
