The former CEO of a Canadian satellite operator has beem tapped to become the new president of the Canadian Space Agency. The Canadian government announced Thursday that Larry Boisvert will become the new president of the CSA, taking over from acting president Carole Lacombe. The last regular president of the CSA, former astronaut Marc Garneau, left the space agency in late 2005 in a failed bid to win a seat in the Canadian Parliament. Boisvert was president and CEO of Telesat Canada, an operator of several communications satellites, from 1993 until his retirement last year. The announcement was made the same day as the CSA announced that it had delivered to NASA a weather experiment package that will be included on NASA's Phoenix Mars lander mission, scheduled for launch in August
