NASA's Budget Over the Years

For those of who don’t know, Penny4NASA is an organization that is comprised of enthusiastic space advocates that want to get NASA to 1% of the Federal budget. Penny4NASA is derived from the notion that right now NASA receives half a percent of the federal budget or half a penny of the American dollar. The current budget has let NASA do wonderful science that helps us learn about our solar system and beyond. However, this budget has also not been enough for many missions and projects and ended up cancelling many of them. A panel called “Review of United States Human Space Flight Plans,” examines the ongoing activities of NASA and will seek input from the White House, public ,industry, and international partners as it develops options. The public is an important part and with the help of the silent majority we can make a huge difference. If you would love to help in your own way then go here right now and tell your policy maker why NASA needs more budget.

 

Just remember that with 4% of the federal budget it got us to land on the Moon as well as a return of investment of 33%! Let’s make a difference and see what other mysteries are waiting to be discovered by us.
