The promotion campaign for NASA science fraud John Mather seems to be alive and well. This time the Da Vinci Schools will do the honors.

Here is the Press Release:

James Webb Space Telescope Partners Sponsor Presentation by Nobel Laureate at Da Vinci Charter School

REDONDO BEACH, Calif., Apr 12, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) — NASA and Northrop Grumman Corporation (NOC 66.27, +0.12, +0.18%) are co-sponsoring a community event that will feature Nobel Prize-winning physicist Dr. John Mather, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope Senior Project Scientist. Dr. Mather will speak at Da Vinci Schools in Hawthorne, Calif., Thursday, April 15 at 6:45 p.m.

It seems to me that a perfectly appropriate event was planned to promote the James Webb Space Telescope, and (unfortunately) as the leader of the science team, John Mather was the ex-officio presenter.

Then a clever twist was given in the PR, and this was turned into a Nobel Laureate-feting event. Mather got the marquee. The JWST got the secondary billing.

Yo Gen. Bolden! They’re running circles around you, man!
