NASA to cut workforce

NASA plans to cut the size of its workforce by as much as 15.3 percent by the summer of 2006, according to a report in the Washington Post.

James L. Jennings, NASA's associate administrator for institutions and management, indicated the cuts will be made to help carry out the Bush administration's future space policy goals, which include a return to the moon by 2020. Jennings characterized the plan as streamlining the agency rather than downsizing.
