New NASA Goddard Director Sworn In With Sagan’s “Pale Blue Dot”
You might want to take a closer look of this photo of Dr. Makenzie Lystrup as she is sworn in as the new director of Goddard Space Flight Center.
Look closely at where Dr. Lystrup’s left hand is. It is on a book. The book is not the Bible. That book is Carl Sagan’s 1994 bestseller “Pale Blue Dot“. Oh my.
Why do I suddenly get the urge to apply for a job over in Maryland At Goddard? Anyone who does this has to be cool to work for. Wow. Astrobiologists: take note.
