has had the ability to attract good people to work in
"The Early Bird satellite Increased the capacity for
long-distance communications," he said. "Also, principles
used in re-entry may someday be applicable to high speed
"It's odd that in the year of NASA's greatest success,
when man landed on the moon, the budget should be cut,"
Within NASA funds must be allocated to its numerous
programs. These include study of the lunar surface and
the planets, solar observation and the study of X-ray, gamma
ray and radio sources.
NASA must also decide whether to emphasize manned
or unmanned space flights, Leung noted. He added that
