Following this heady success, AMSOC recommended proceeding to the next goal--the Moho.
In spite of its initial successes, other factors caused AMSOC to lose its favored lead-role position in the Moho project by late 1961, and the AMSOC group was relegated to advisory capacity, forcing NSF to seek a new prime contractor.
This factor-of-six escalation over initial AMSOC estimates caused alarm in both the scientific community and Congress, so much so that Congress passed a law in 1966 forbidding NSF to proceed.
