Air Force Names Woman Chief Scientist

For the first time.

The U.S. Department of Defense has announced the Air Force’s newest appointment of its 34th chief scientist—and for the first time, it's a woman. Mica Endsley is the only female chief scientist to lead in both the technology and science fields. She previously served on the Air Force Advisory Board. Endsley said she wants to ensure the Air Force continues to develop and support the airmen and -women throughout their missions. The scientist will surely take this position to new heights.
