The proposed NASA budget for 2015 has been released. In the presentation, available here, NASA breaks down budget highlights for the various research areas. Some outcomes include:
- Extending life on the ISS until 2024
- Continue work on JWST
- The launch of some new missions: SMAP, MMS, SAGE III
One saddening outcome is that the SOFIA observatory could be grounded in 2015 if the proposed funding to keep it up could not be met.
This presentation also includes cost breakdowns for commercial spaceflight and science education.
