On Wednesday, March 21st, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), a Member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies, questioned NASA Administrator Charles Bolden about proposed cuts to the planetary sciences program. During the hearing, Rep. Schiff and other Members took strong issue with Bolden over the Obama Administration's proposal which would eliminate funding for a pair of missions to Mars. The budget proposal would eliminate $309 million for planetary science, much of which is done at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
