NASA’s longest serving administrator, Dan Goldin, will resign from the space agency November 17 after being in that position for 10 years. He accepted an interim position as senior fellow for the Washington-based Council on Competitiveness, an organization that works to establish U.S. economic competitiveness and leadership in world markets. It’s too soon to know if Goldin’s departure will have any effect on NASA’s general aviation and other aeronautical research projects. He will work with NASA to identify an interim acting administrator before he leaves office
