NASA Announces Fiscal Year 2012 Budget


WASHINGTON -- NASA announced Monday an $18.7 billion budget request for fiscal year 2012 that supports a reinvigorated path of innovation, technological development and scientific discovery. The budget supports all elements of NASA's 2010 Authorization Act, which was passed by a strong bipartisan majority of Congress and signed into law by President Obama.

"This budget requires us to live within our means so we can invest in our future," NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said. "It maintains our commitment to human spaceflight and provides for strong programs to continue the outstanding science, aeronautics research and education needed to win the future."

The NASA budget includes $4.3 billion for the Space Shuttle and International Space Station programs, $5 billion for science, $3.9 billion for future exploration systems and $569 million for aeronautics research.

Due on Capitol Hill Feb. 13, the $17.7 billion NASA budget proposal represents only a slight reduction from the $17.8 billion Congress approved in November for 2012. But compared to the $18.7 billion Obama penciled in for 2013 in the five-year budget he sent Congress this time last year, it represents a 5 percent cut.

Wow nice catch the last one, it's like the terrain was copied and pasted over several positions there... You can't find similar patterns around that area, that's really really strange.

OP,

NASA wants to apologize, apparently you got hold of the "Un-Edited" photo's.

Please send it back to NASA for a "Replacement" photo.

Thanks,

NASA

Re: NASA Mars rover image - why am I looking at a road?
For me there is no question , NASA and Russians and soon Chinese , have or will have ability to reach Mars.. sometimes without sometimes with success.. That is no question.

Question is is credibility of those agencies , especially NASA.. Russians as well..

That is simply proven failure..

we are being informed and treated just like a little kids and on top of that we are getting more then often false information.. And then people argue about it while whole subject is false..

And etc... It is really getting boring , only thing certain is doom in many shapes and forms..

And that is simply altogether an insult to an intelligence..

According to the 2012 estimate, about $9K was spent on aeronautics (commercial air safety development et al) and Earth sciences (mostly satellite imaging for weather et al.

Ongoing space operations (ISS, the last Shuttle flights) was $5K, and under $4K was spent on exploration; developing and managing new planetary probes.

All things being equal, Curiosity cost the same as 2 days (each fiscal year) of the post-war Afghanistan operation.
