Director of the Universe

From NASA Science Mission Directorate Oral History Project, David D. Morrison interviewed by Sandra Johnson

Johnson: In ’96 you became the Director of Space at Ames.

Morrison: Director of Space was a wonderful title. I still have a few business cards with that on it. I joked that it was a terrible responsibility: if I didn’t do my job every day the planets would fall out of their orbits, the galaxies would explode. But then NASA Headquarters did a reorganization and created a division called the universe, and so they had Director of the Universe at Headquarters.
