Senate Confirms New NASA Head: "The Senate Wednesday approved Michael Griffin as NASA chief, completing a swift confirmation process ahead of the space shuttle's scheduled return to flight in the next two months.

"Griffin, 55, is a widely popular choice to lead the U.S. space agency. Democratic and Republican senators at Griffin's confirmation hearing praised the physicist, who holds seven degrees and, until now, headed the space department at Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Laboratory."
