NASA has rescinded its order for the cut back on current Mars research. Yesterday we reported how the space agency was set to lay a load of scientists and technical analysts off due to budgetary cutbacks.
After all the stir from the press and scientific community it would appear that NASA has come to its senses and is rethinking that cut-back plan.
NASA is saying Tuesday that it has rescinded a letter that recommended budget cuts in the Mars Rover program to cover the cost of a next-generation rover on the Red Planet.
This comes just one day after the announcement from NASA of their plans to shut down 1 rover and layoff up to 300 employees.
Nice to see reason prevail over the almight dollar.
