NASA Ames will head up robotic moon missions, SJ Mercury News

“Ames will take charge of an orbiter and lander that are under construction at other centers, as well as two to three future missions whose details have not been determined, said Christopher McKay, the program scientist at Ames. Although the budget for these programs totals about $400 million a year, he said, much of that money will be handed out to other centers that are building the hardware, and Ames will initially gain only about a dozen jobs.”
