    FILE - This Feb. 13, 1979 photo released by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory on Feb. 22, 1979 shows the planet Jupiter and two of its moons, Io, left, and Europa, center. The Voyager 1 spacecraft was about 12.4 million miles from Jupiter when the photo was made. NASA said Tuesday, March 4, 2014 it is making preparations to plan a robotic mission to Jupiter's watery moon Europa, a place where astronomers speculate there might be life. The space agency set aside $15 million in its 2015 budget proposal to start planning a mission to Europa. No details were released but NASA chief financial officer Elizabeth Robinson said Tuesday that it would be launched in the mid-2020s. (AP Photo/NASA, Jet Propulsion Laboratory)

    In this 1998 photo provided by NASA and Universities Space Research Association (USRA) shows a modified Boeing 747SP jetliner containing the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) infrared observatory, a project of NASA and the German Aerospace Center. The White House released its budget on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, that proposes to mothball the observatory unless Germany and other partners can kick in more money. (AP Photo/NASA/USRA)

    FILE - This Oct. 5, 2011 file satellite photo provided by NASA shows algae blooms on Lake Erie. A U.S.-Canadian agency is calling for sharp cutbacks in phosphorus runoff into Lake Erie to counter a worsening problem of algae blooms that degrade water quality, harm fish and chase away tourists. In a report Thursday, Feb 27, 2014, the International Joint Commission identifies farm fertilizer as a primary culprit in feeding runaway algae blooms. It recommends placing Lake Erie on a federal impaired waters list, which would activate a plan to limit phosphorus levels. (AP Photo/NASA, File)
