Biden Administration Seeks Over $25B for NASA in FY25 Budget

The Biden-Harris administration is requesting over $25 billion for NASA in the fiscal year 2025 budget to continue its work on better understanding the planet and space.

Bill Nelson, administrator of the U.S. space agency, said the White House’s budget proposal will help ensure that the United States remains a leader in space exploration, scientific discovery and cutting-edge technology.

The budget request includes a $7.8 billion funding request to secure the future of the Artemis campaign, a $2.4 billion request to improve the Earth science program for missions and activities advancing Earth systems science and a $966 million request for developing hybrid electric jet engines, lightweight aircraft structures and other aeronautic projects, NASA .gov reported.

The Artemis project is one of the big initiatives on which the space agency is currently working. In January, it canceled the Artemis 2 and 3 missions to address technical issues that could impact crew safety.

It also entered into a partnership with Axiom Space to assess the viability of next-generation spacesuits for crew members participating in the Artemis 3 mission.
