Biden’s 2022 NASA budget proposal gives science and commercial space a boost


President Joe Biden’s federal budget proposal for 2022 gives NASA more science funding than ever before while continuing to pave the way for the next human moon landing in 2024. 

The White House’s $6 trillion federal spending bill, released Friday (May 28), gives NASA a total of $24.8 billion, including “the largest budget request for NASA science, ever,” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said Friday in a news conference. “The Biden administration is proving that science is back,” he added. Of the agency’s total proposed budget, about $7.9 billion will go to the agency’s science division, a 9% increase from 2021.
