NASA funding to focus on outer space

2018 budget to be $19.1 billion

President Trump is proposing a $19.1 billion budget for NASA in 2018 that is about the same as the current year’s $19.3 billion allocation.
But Trump’s vision for NASA calls for some dramatic shifts from the priorities the space agency pursued under President Obama, according to a broad budget outline the White House released Thursday. Line-item details on the administration’s proposed spending plan for NASA and other executive branch agencies are expected in the coming weeks. The change in funding priorities would include a cut in Earth science programs, but support for a mission to study Jupiter’s icy moon Europa, elimination of education programs, but more resources to improve cybersecurity of the space program.
