JPL Gets Mars Funding

The House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies gave NASA and specifically JPL $75 million more than the President requested for 2009. The programs that got help are:

  • $78.1 million for exoplanet research for the proposed 2010 Space Interferometry Mission
  • Continue funding Rovers Spirit and Opportunity for 4 1/2 more years
  • $101.1 million would go to NASA's Outer Planets Program
