  1. That sort of entreaty would likely fall on deaf ears, so wide of the mark that it is. But be comforted, certain people are in a twist because Smith is a global warming skeptic.

  2. While Lamar Smith was not my first preference for chairman, I still have some hopes that things might change.

    Not necessarily at the 60,000-foot level of SLS, but a lot of the new commercial space companies are located in, or relocating to, Texas. So, he might be open to ideas that would help some of the smaller programs like Centennial Challenges and Flight Opportunities.

    Also, it isn’t just the committee chair that’s changing. There’s a huge turnover on the Science Committee this year.
