Ex-astronaut chosen as interim NASA chief

NASA has apparently chosen former astronaut Fred Gregory as its acting administrator, following the departure of Sean O'Keefe.

Gregory will become the first African-American to lead the space agency.

Gregory is a veteran of three space shuttle flights, and has served as NASA's deputy administrator since 2002.

The Reuters report adds that it's not clear whether Gregory would fill the role permanently.
