Submission + - Mars mission back on the cards after budget cuts (nature.com)

ananyo writes: NASA has said it will re-design its Mars exploration programme, and that the new architecture would include input — and money — from the human programme as well as the space technology division. Orlando Figueroa, the former deputy director for space and technology at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, is to head up a seven or eight person committee, and to start developing mission concepts in the next month. One of those concepts would be a possible $700 million mission launching in 2018. The news offers a grain of comfort to a community still reeling from massive cuts to the Mars program (http://science.slashdot.org/story/12/02/14/0017235/white-house-wants-devastating-cuts-to-nasas-mars-exploration).
