AAS Rips into NASA Space Science Budget Cuts

American Astronomical Society Calls Cuts to NASA Science Funding a Threat to US Pre-eminence in Space

"NASA's Science Mission Directorate (SMD) budget for FY 2005 has come under intense pressure with required reductions of several hundred million dollars arising from costs of returning the shuttle fleet to flight, unplanned expenses associated with the Hubble Space Telescope, and a record level of unfunded congressional earmarks. As a result, NASA has announced a series of terminations of new mission opportunities, as well as cutbacks in key R&A programs for the coming year."
