Increase in NASA budget

Unread post by Matthew »

President Joe Biden's federal budget proposal for 2022 gives NASA more funding than ever paving the way for progress on the ambitious Artemis program.

Biden's $6 trillion federal spending bill, released Friday (May 28), gives NASA a total of $24.8 billion, NASA Administrator Senator Bill Nelson said Friday in a news conference. "The Biden administration is proving that science is back," he added. Of the agency's total proposed budget, about $7.9 billion will go to the agency's science division, a 9% increase from 2021.

The Biden administration proposed a 5% increase in funding for deep-space exploration systems, which includes hardware for NASA's Artemis program, which is working to send astronauts to the moon by 2024. And although Biden did not propose delaying the 2024 moon landing — a timeline set by the previous presidential administration — NASA Chief Financial Officer Steve Shinn acknowledged that "the ambitious mission could be delayed."
