O'Keefe leaves NASA

NASA administrator Sean O'Keefe bade farewell to NASA Friday in Washington on his last day leading the space agency. O'Keefe leaves NASA after accepting the position of chancellor of Louisiana State University.

An article in the Houston Chronicle reports his departure from the agency.

O'Keefe led NASA through one of its darkest times, following the space shuttle Columbia's accident on February 1, 2003. In 2004 he helped spearhead the Bush administration's goals of future spaceflight, including a possible return to the moon.
