NASA's new chief visits JPL, San Gabriel Valley Tribune
"In the last year or so, we, NASA, had frankly taken some money from earth science and from solar physics and space science and other areas and used it to beef up the Mars program," Griffin said. Now NASA is going to re-shift that portfolio, Griffin said. "We will not be building up the Mars budget at quite the rate that had previously been planned."
