NASA's 2010 budget
NASA announces its budget for fiscal year 2010. The table is from the budget summary, which shows how NASA spends its money. The 2010 budget is about $18 billion, with more than half spent on Exploration/Space Ops (eg, manned spaceflight), and almost a third on Science, with the rest spent on activities at various NASA centers (Johnson, Ames, etc). Of interest to me is the Planetary Science budget line, which stays flat until year 2011.
