I think this poll is rigged because my roommate just voted and Seth had 254 votes and now I just gave him 3 more votes and it is down to 249. How does that work?
Seth, Senior Astronomer at the SETI Institute is the man for the job! He can connect with the public very well, and has a smooth way of reaching people who you might mistakenly think are out of his reach. He is just what NASA needs to regain public acceptance. Go Seth! Oh, and I heard he's good at math or something...
PhD. SETI Institute. His Dissertation was actually the one that predicted the existence of Dark Matter. Highly Amusing as anyone who has ever seen him give a talk can tell you. Can do complex mathematics in his head. Likes In-N-Out Burgers. Speaks fluent Dutch. Has a podcast. Friends with most of the people above him in this poll. Too pro-Capitalism for my tastes, but what are you gonna do? Sigh.
