HILO, Hawaii (AP) _ NASA has decided to yank further funding for the proposed Outrigger telescopes on Mauna Kea , making it a long shot that the project will ever be completed.

NASA has already spent 15 (m) million to 20 (m) million dollars on the project to build four to six smaller telescopes around the existing twin 33-foot telescopes on the mountain.
