Science on The Hill Today

Opening Statement by Rep. Udall: NASA's Space Science Programs: Review of Fiscal Year 2008 Budget Request and ISS

"As can be seen by the title of today's hearing, we are going to focus on a subset of NASA's science activities, namely its astrophysics, planetary science, and heliophysics programs. Obviously, NASA's Earth Science program is an important element of NASA's overall science program, but it will be the focus of a separate hearing that will expand on the full committee hearing we held earlier this year. In addition, while not currently part of the Science Mission Directorate, NASA's life and microgravity research programs are also important research endeavors that will be scrutinized by this Subcommittee in the coming months, particularly in light of the deep-and many would say unwise-cuts that NASA has made to those programs."
