Update on George Deutsch

To follow up on this post

Wow, apparently despite the fact that the papers have been calling him a graduate of Texas A & M University, George Deutsch didn’t actually get his degree! Blogger Nick Anthis, himself an actual graduate from Texas A & M, did a little sniffing around and brought this to light.

And even better news, in the wake of all this international pressure, Deutsch has resigned.

Story obtained via Pharyngula.

And more from the Bad Astonomer. Seems the journalists who broke the story officially credits Anthis with the find, and the discovery he had lied on his CV lead directly to Deutsch resigning. Yay! Go bloggers!

  1. It is great that Deutsch has resigned, but we need to remember that he’s really just a symptom of a much larger censorship issue happening at NASA currently – There’s an online action here:

    Thanks for covering this story. And yes, bloggers kick ass.

  2. Good riddance!

  3. That’s one George down, one to go.
