White House Asks For Bigger NASA Budget

The White House asked Congress for $25.2 billion for NASA in 2021, the biggest budget in decades.

The request would raise the budget for the National Aeronautics and Space Administrationโ€™s by 12 percent.

According to Reuters, half of the budget would go toward the โ€œMoon to Marsโ€ program.

This program includes development of lunar landers, robotic rovers, heavy-lift rockets and new spacesuits.

NASA projects the Mars project will cost $71.1 billion over the next five years.
