PASADENA, Calif. (AP) NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena plans to lay off as many as 250 workers by the end of March to deal with a tight federal budget.
JPL executive Richard O'Toole tells the Pasadena Star-News that the layoffs will keep current projects going through the rest of the year.
He didn't specify which programs would be affected by the layoffs.
JPL has about 5,200 employees. The laboratory northeast of Los Angeles has designed or controlled many space missions, including sending rovers to Mars.
