NASA’s $27 billion budget gets more political than ever

NASA administrator Bill Nelson testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation Tuesday about how much money the administration claims it needs for the 2024 fiscal year.

The space agency’s budget requests have continued to increase. NASA received about $25.5 billion last year, up from $24 billion the year before.

Next year’s request adds up to $27.2 billion, a 7.1% increase over last year.

House Republicans have already said they want to gut the entire federal budget by as much as 22%, which Nelson said would “devastate” NASA and Artemis.
