NASA's human spaceflight lead resigns days before Crew Dragon launch
Engadget ---------- NASA’s return to US-based crew launches will take place under less-than-ideal circumstances. The agency has revealed that its associate administrator for human exploration, Doug Loverro, has resigned as of May 18th — nine days before Crew Dragon’s first voyage with humans aboard. He’s also leaving less than half a year after taking the role. NASA didn’t say what prompted the departure, but SpaceNews sources claimed there was a disagreement between Loverro and administrator Jim Bridenstine over the nature of the exploration program. Ars Technica heard it might stem from the lunar spacecraft bidding process that saw Blue Origin, SpaceX and Dynetics win contracts. To learn more click on the picture below to read the article.
