MSl Heads Toward The Chopping block - Update

NASA to Provide Mars Science Laboratory Launch Update

"NASA will host a media teleconference at 3 p.m. EDT, Friday, Oct. 10, to brief reporters after a meeting held by the agency's administrator concerning the Mars Science Laboratory, or MSL. The meeting is to discuss technical and budget issues."

Editor's note: In other words: "how do we kick the can down the road past the election so that a new Administration can deal with it? There's certainly no one left who cares to answer the phone at The White House any more."

Stay tuned.
