27-Jul-99 | SIRTF at risk of cancellation

SIRTF, a NASA infrared telescope, may be in danger of cancellation, as the U.S. House Appropriations Committee has approved a FY2000 budget that eliminates the $100 million requested for this project. Future Mars missions, including the endangered Mars Surveyor 2001 Lander, also took a $75 million hit. (Meanwhile, the Boeing Launch Manifest has returned to stating that SIRTF will fly on a 7920-H, implying the use of higher-powered booster motors on a Delta II. That is, if it flies at all.)
