Space Review May 4th, 2009

The newest Space Review is out:

Doing more for less (or the same) in space science
While NASA may be getting a modest budget increase overall in 2010, its space science program has a challenge of doing increasingly complex missions within a relatively constrained budget. Jeff Foust reports on what some NASA officials say are the best ways for NASA to balance cost, performance, and risk for its ambitious slate of science missions.Monday, May 4, 2009
