Yesterday Obama unveiled an $US18.7 billion budget for NASA in 2010—a 5% increase over this past year. This is a preliminary figure that could change after a 3-month review of the agency is completed.
Some argue that this budget does not reflect Obama’s campaign promises about the future of the space program. Again, this figure is preliminary, but there are definitely opposing viewpoints on how much money should be spent on NASA. So, my question to you is: are we spending too much or not enough?
