The White House budget request for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for fiscal year 1984 contains a number of continuing problems for outside investigators in universities and in the private sector. Nonetheless, the budget climate for NASA seems to be improving. (For more information on the budget for FY 1984, see Eos, February 15, 1983, p. 65, and May 17, 1983, p. 378.)
Several new program starts are responsible for the feeling of optimism being sensed in many sectors of the scientific community. These include the Venus Radar Mapper, a shuttle-tethered satellite to study the earth's upper atmosphere (the tether could be 100 km in length), and the EUVE experiment (Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer).
