NASA Funding Saved!
In the last week before the holiday recess, the U.S. Congress finally appropriated budget funds to the federal agencies -- including NASA.
It includes important increases for planetary exploration and restores funding for science, within a total $17.3 billion for NASA.
The Planetary Society can take partial credit for this, as they launched a broad-based “Save Our Science” amongst their tens of thousands of U.S. members.
Congrats to Planetary Executive Director Louis Friedman and our other friends at the Planetary Society for helping to secure this important funding.
