Posted: Sat, Dec 31, 2016, 10:48 AM ET (1548 GMT)
NASA's chief scientist is leaving the agency after more than three years on the job. Ellen Stofan left NASA this month "for new adventures," according to an interview NASA posted on a social media site earlier this month. Stofan had been chief scientist since August 2013, serving as the principal adviser to the NASA administrator on science issues. Separately, NASA has named a new deputy associate administrator for its science directorate. Dennis Andrucyk, the current deputy associate administrator for space technology, will fill that post in mid-January.
