“Some NASA managers privately concede that major cuts to aging aeronautics programs are essential to help pay for the White House’s costly plan to return astronauts to the moon by 2020 and head on to Mars. Critics contend many aeronautics projects are thinly veiled government jobs programs doing tasks better suited for the private sector.”
