NASA Planetary Science Not Being Killed, Says NASA Official, Universe Today

"This would all be horrible if true, but the director of NASA's Planetary Science division, Jim Green assured members of the NASA Advisory Council's Planetary Science subcommittee that it is not."

Planetary Science Lives, NASA Official Says, Space News

"Speaking at an Oct. 27 meeting of the NASA Advisory Council's Planetary Science subcommittee, Jim Green, director of NASA's Planetary Science division, took issue with an opinion piece claiming the agency was gutting its robotic exploration program following a pair of upcoming missions."

Keith's note: OK Bob. Please show show us the budget documents wherein OMB intends to "terminate NASA's planetary exploration program." No one else seems to know about this. Maybe you can reveal hard proof to support your claim next week at your event with the Planetary Society.
