8.4.2022 | President Joe Biden requests $25 Billion Budget for NASA for 2023
President Joe Biden is requesting a whopping $26 billion for NASA for 2023, roughly $2 billion more than the space agency received for the current fiscal year, according to newly released budget documents from the White House.
If enacted as is, a third of that budget would go toward NASA’s Artemis program — the agency’s ambitious initiative to send humans back to the Moon.
Roughly $7.5 billion is being set aside for Artemis, which aims to send the first woman and first person of color to the Moon as early as 2025. Part of that funding will go toward the development of a new lunar lander capable of taking humans to and from the lunar surface.
