    What's being cut here is a 2016 orbiter to look for methane on Mars and a 2018 rover, both in cooperation with the EU, who are kinda pissed that they've sunk hundreds of millions of euros into designing a giant drill and scientific instruments to go on a rover we've decided not to build and an orbiter we've decided not to launch.

    After MAVEN next year, this budget shuts down robotic exploration until the end of Obama's presidency.
