Citing a lack of available funds, NASA has ended support for two Earth observation missions: Hydros, which never left the formulation phase, and the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR), which was already built and waiting for launch.
Richard Anthes, president of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colo., said that these two new cancellations are “further evidence that…the nation's Earth-observation satellite programs are at risk.”
