The Trump Administration released its proposed FY2018 budget just days ago. Casey Dreier, Jason Callahan and Mat Kaplan dive deep into what this controversial plan means for NASA and how it has been received by Congress. Casey and Jason then provide a fascinating though disturbing preview of a Planetary Society white paper. Mars in Retrograde carefully and comprehensively analyzes the history and current status of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program, and calls for immediate steps to protect future robotic exploration of the Red Planet.
