NASA is reportedly considering taking a big axe to some space exploration projects in its new budget due out Monday. Missions to explore Mars may feel the brunt of those cuts, according to reports.

We've looked at the space program and its future several times: This program focused on one Mars expedition, while this hour focused on NASAs future. We spoke with astronaut Buzz Aldrin on this show about the space agency. Earlier this summer, we took a look at the last space launch in this hour.

This program aired on February 10, 2012. The audio for this program is not available.
