JOHN MATHER NOBEL SCHOLARS 2010: ANYDAY NOW!

The announcement of the John Mather Nobel Scholarships – funded by science fraud John Mather’s Nobel Prize money, administered by the Henry Foundation and hosted at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center – is due any day now.

In 2008 it was given to five interns at NASA-GSFC, and announced on 16 July.

In 2009 it was given to twelve interns at NASA-GSFC, and announced on 21 July.

So this week seems to be it! Watch the Henry Foundation website!

At the time of the 2008 awards, the website of the Henry Foundation was replete with statements that suggested they were affiliated to NASA.

At the time of the 2009 awards, all these statements were removed, and a disclaimer issued:

The Henry Foundation has no connection with NASA, and does not represent NASA in any way.

So the question now is: Can NASA have any say in an outside agency awarding scholarships to interns at NASA?

Who can prevent fine younsters from being branded with the name of the greatest science fraud in history?

The answer: The youngsters themselves.

While we wait for the 2010 John Mather Nobel Scholars, don’t forget that this year there are already two new young men carrying the Mather name: The John Mather AIP Policy Interns.


A NOTE ADDED ON 8 AUGUST 2010:
The John Mather Nobel Scholars 2010 have been announced. See my later post.
