Mars Science Lab Delayed to 2011?

A NASA insider says the space agency is delaying launch of a giant Mars robotic mission.

The Mars Science Laboratory was scheduled to fly next year. But the project has been dogged by cost increases and technical challenges. The launch has been postponed until 2011.


Today is jsut full of suckage.

Ha! I worked on this some time ago (on a proof-of-concept for one of the instruments). I'm pleased that it was even going to fly at all. :)

Bob Steinke worked on it too (and the MERs). Los Alamosians are just overachieve too much.
