CXC Biographies: Dr. Edward J. Weiler
Associate Administrator for Space Science, NASA

In November 1998 Dr. Edward J. Weiler was appointed as NASA's Associate Administrator for Space Science. In this capacity, Weiler is responsible for providing overall executive leadership of NASA's Space Science Enterprise. This enterprise aims to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the origins and evolution of the Solar System and the Universe, including connections between the Sun and the Earth, the beginnings of life and the question of whether life exists elsewhere beyond Earth. It also is charged with communicating this knowledge to the public.

Weiler was appointed as Science Director of the Astronomical Search for Origins and Planetary Systems theme within the Office of Space Science in March 1996. He will continue to serve as the Program Scientist for the Hubble Space Telescope, a position he has held since 1979, until a replacement for that position is selected. Weiler joined NASA in 1978 as a staff scientist.
