House Science Committee Hearing on FY 2017 NASA Budget

House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology's Subcommittee on Space Reviews NASA Budget Challenges

"Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas): "There are some areas of agreement between the Committee and the administration in NASA's Fiscal Year 2017 budget request. But this proposed budget continues to tie our astronauts' feet to the ground and makes a Mars mission all but impossible."

House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology's Subcommittee on Space Reviews the NASA Budget Proposal for Fiscal Year 2017

"Though generally supportive of the budget request, Democratic Members of the Subcommittee discussed a number of concerns, such as the need for funding stability for NASA; the proposed cuts in funding for the Space Launch System and the Orion spacecraft; the proposed reduction in spending on STEM education; potential risks of schedule pressure for Exploration-Mission 2; and the need for a roadmap for a manned mission to Mars."
