President Obama signs $17.6 billion NASA budget


spaceflightnow.com said:

President Barack Obama signed a budget measure Friday giving NASA more than $17.6 billion for the year, fully funding the space agency's heavy-lift Space Launch System and Orion exploration capsule while falling short of NASA's request to pay for commercial space taxis.

The space agency's top line budget is $17.65 billion in the spending bill, which runs until the end of September and was passed by Congress earlier this week. The $1.1 trillion budget covers the entire federal government.

So you want NASA to spend their money on something that is currently not technically possible. Right?!

Even congress' decisions on how NASA must spend this money look sensible in comparison.
