Supposedly leaked documents provided the basis for a recent editorial by former space scientist Jeffrey F. Bell at SpaceDaily.com, but lo and behold, the original article that Bell based his report on has been retracted by NASASpaceFlight.com as per orders from NASA.
In a follow-up story Bell questions exactly what happened to cause the retraction and more importantly what sort of shenanigans are going on at the nation's space center.
It's hard to imagine what might come next for the beleaguered space agency who recently saw more delays in the shuttle Return To Flight program, a high level administrator busted for pedophilia and now falsified documents promoting a personal agenda within the program.
Given the agency spends billions of taxpayer dollars each year, some sort of accountability program should be in place. But it remains to be seen if it is, or that it works...
