The American Congress has finally approved a new NASA budget. The agency has $ 19.5 billion to spend over the year. Most of this money will go exclusively to space missions.

In the future, however, they will not be developed, as almost all the money received from the US government will go to space missions.
The US Congress has just approved a new budget, giving NASA $ 19.5 billion. The budget adopted without any opposition focuses almost exclusively on travel and space research.
Some of the money received will be spent on the Orion and SLS programs, as well as the unmanned missions scheduled for next year. The agency will also allocate funds to send man to Mars by 2030.
In addition, NASA will increase the presence of man on a low Earth orbit, and will also handle supersonic airplanes and travel related projects. Many resources can also be spent on the Asteroid Redirect Mission, which aims to capture asteroids flying close to our planet.

Hudway Glass is a compact body with a plastic transparent lens that is installed on the dashboard of our car.
