The problem with NASA is that it takes an act of congress to accomplish anything.  I'm actually surprised they can even launch the new rover.  I wouldn't be surprised also to see the rover delayed because of something idiotic just like the James Web Telescope that was to be launched originally in 2007 and now is delayed to 2015/16.  This may not be the case for all parts of NASA but for the limited time I spent their 90% of the day is spent on emails, meetings, and ungodly amounts of safety factors (cut finger on glass calls for going to the clinic and filing of a close call report).  Only about 10% of work done is real engineering work.  "Hurry up and wait," and "time is money."
