IS SCIENCE FRAUD JOHN MATHER MANAGING NEWS ABOUT HIMSELF?

Recently, John Mather got on the new Nobel Tube (Nobel You Tube) and declared that his appearance was being sponsored by NASA and the Nobel Foundation. It had the direct message: The two organizations are concertedly and resoundingly reaffirming him.

It seems to me that the extent of NASA’s involvement may be just providing videoconference facilities – a decision that would have been made by a low level manager. If NASA leadership wanted to reaffirm John Mather, they would have simply, and at the very least, taken him out of the doghouse in which they keep him. As of this date, they have not. Mather continues to remain in his pre-Nobel Prize job status of three years ago.

Recently, Mather approached the American Institute of Physics with the proposal to set up at AIP an Internship program bearing his name. The AIP agreed to this. But then there appeared this Press Release by Mather’s alma mater, Swarthmore College:

The American Institute of Physics (AIP) has established the Mather Public Policy Intern Program in honor of Swarthmore alumnus and Nobel laureate John Mather.

Capice?!
