NASA centers across the country are talking about the “State of NASA” as the agency continues their journey to Mars.
Innovation drives this journey to reach new heights and reveal the unknown, which will benefit all of humankind.
NASA Administrator Charles Bolden addressed the State of NASA saying that President Obama’s FY2016 budget request of $18.5 billion, a half-billion dollar increase over last year, “is a clear vote of confidence” in NASA’s “ambitious exploration program.”
The Budget ensures that the United States remains the world’s leader in space exploration and scientific discovery, while positioning America to out-innovate our competitors and inspire the next generation of technology leaders.
It keeps us on track to launch American astronauts from U.S. soil in 2017 and expands the use of the International Space Station to improve life on Earth and help make the next great leaps in scientific discovery and exploration.
The plan invests in American ingenuity, drives innovation and helps create new transportation systems to reach low-Earth orbit and end our reliance on foreign launch providers.
It supports development of the Space Launch System and Orion crew vehicle for deep space human exploration to an asteroid and Mars.
