Retired Navy Admiral and former high-ranking NASA official Craig Steidle has stepped down as the president of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation for medical reasons, according to CSF Chairman Eric Anderson.
“The entire commercial spaceflight industry recognizes Admiral Steidle’s tremendous work during his service to CSF,” Anderson said in a statement quoted by Space News. “He has been able to accomplish much since taking the helm and the Federation wishes him well and thanks him for all his hard work.”
Steidle succeeded Bretton Alexander as CSF president on May 15. The federation has not named a successor yet.
