Transcript of Science
The 2014 budget for the science department of NASA was $5,017,000,000.80, which was a 2% decrease from 2013. There was no change from 2004 to 2014. The sector was established in 1958 by the National Aeronautics and space act. The money is distributed into the following categories.
Space Operation takes 3.833 billion dollars of tax dollars a year, or 22.6% of NASA's entire budget. This is a 9% drop from 2013, and a 48% drop from 2004.
This money goes to the upkeep of the International Space Station (ISS), and those who man the ISS.
It goes to the Space Shuttle Program (SSP), responsible for sending people to the ISS.
It funds the Launch Services Program (LSP), which is responsible for managing, producing and overseeing the Space Shuttle launches.
This money also funds the Space Communications and Navigation (SCN), responsible for guiding the Space shuttle to the ISS once it has launched, and communicating with the people that man the ISS on their way to it, and once they are there, and on their way home.
Cross Agency Support
Cross Agency Support requires 2.85 billion tax dollars a year, 16.6% of NASA's total budget. This is a 5% drop from 2013. This section of the budget did not exist in 2004.
Cross Agency Support consists of Center Management Operations (CMO), and Agency Management and operations (AMO).
CMO provides critical mission support across different programs, to oversee and ensure any NASA project has smooth transitions from program to program and runs smoothly overall.
AMO provides management for NASA as a whole and oversees each program and branch in general, doing things such as managing budget, staff and project.

The space technology department aims to develop revolutionary technology to support NASA's current and future missions while also improving life on earth.
In 2014 this department received $0.734 Billion, a 28% increase from 2013. This department was created in 2011 and is directed by Michael Gazarik. 844 people are employed as technicians at NASA.
NASA's exploration budget takes 3.916 billion dollars of tax dollars a year, or 22.1% of NASA's entire budget. This is a 3% raise since 2013, and a 0% change from 2004. Includes the Human Research Program(HRP)and the Advanced Exploration Systems (AES) Program. HRP researches the human system to provide countermeasures, knowledge, technologies, and tools to enable safe, reliable, and productive human spaceflight missions.
Current Head: William Gerstenmaier
Number of Employees: 3,000+
The Space Operations sub-division was created the same year as NASA, in 1959.
Historically, this agency was responsible for the actual undertaking of the Apollo missions, and more recently is the agency most responsible for the continued operation of the ISS.
The funding for this sub-division has dropped 48% since 2004 beause since then the Federal government under Obama has drastically cut it's funding to NASA.
Cross Agency Support
Current Head: Kent Bress
This sub-division was created in 2009, and there is no percent change from 2004 because the division did not exist.
This sub-division spends their money on managing inter-divisional projects.
Their funds also go to restoration of NASA facilities that have been damaged by things like weather.
Currently, NASA is working on constructing the most advanced spacecraft in history. Orion's spacecraft will bring 4 astronauts deeper into the galaxy than ever before.
History & Future
Space technology has made many historical accomplishments, such as developing the first communication satellites, an International space station, and exploration technology.
One of the most noted projects to come out of nasa were the Apollo missions that took place during the 1960's and 70's
The NASA Aeronautics department was established in 1958 via the national Aeronautics and space act.
They are dedicated to researching methods for increasing the efficiency and safety of aviation with the aid of the scientific method.
Their developments go into all forms of aviation and air and space craft, not only enhancing NASA's space crafts but commercial airliners as well.
The National Aeronautics and space administration (NASA) was established in 1958 by Dwight D. Eisenhower
