Space Florida lifts off

Space Florida, the new state agency designed to unify Florida’s various space-related offices, officially got off the ground Monday. The public-private office, created by the state legislature earlier this year by merging several existing agencies, is focused at the moment on hiring a president, hoping to have a leader selected in the next six weeks. One problem: it’s not clear exactly what the president of Space Florida will exactly do, according to the Tallahassee Democrat: “The board on Monday deferred to the search committee to write a full job description and decide on a salary range and benefits.”
