Funding of the U.S. space programs will total almost $35 billion–$25.5 billion from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and $9.4 billion in Department of Defense appropriations —for fiscal years 1977–1981, according to a new market study.
The study projects only slight growth in NASA space appropriations but substantial increases in Department of Defense spending during FY1977–1981. Research spending by the National Science Foundation, the Energy Research and Development Administration, and other agencies will be $7.3 billion for the study period, growing at an estimated rate of 4% yearly from $1.3 billion in FY 1977.
