Morris leaving Office of Space Commercialization

Ed Morris, the director of the Office of Space Commercialization within the Commerce Department, will be leaving that post at the end of this month. Morris made the announcement during a speech in an otherwise off-the-record panel session at a space law and policy conference Friday in Washington organized by the University of Nebraska law school (which has a space and telecom law program). The decision is not unexpected since the position is appointed by the president. What will be interesting to watch is how long it takes the new administration to appoint a successor, and what different roles, if any, it will play.
