Project Odyssey update

The Pensacola News-Journal reports that Brice Harris has resigned as director of the “Project Odyssey” space tourism training program at the Andrews Institute in that Florida city. Harris had been under scrutiny since early this year after reports that he played a major role in obtaining a state grant for the effort while working in the state’s Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development. Late last week the state’s inspector general concluded that Harris “likely violated” state law for taking the Andrews Institute job after helping it secure the grant. Harris did not respond to a request for comment by the newspaper, although an Andrews Institute official said that they would continue with Project Odyssey without Harris.
