Congress provides $22.6 billion for NASA in 2020 spending bill

NASA The spending bill gives NASA $22.6 billion in 2020, but doesn't provide the agency all the funding it sought for a lunar lander. The bill includes full funding for many elements of the agency's exploration plans, but offered just $600 million for advanced cislunar and surface capabilities, which covers work on human-rated lunar landers. NASA sought $1 billion for lander development in an amendment to its budget proposal released in May. The bill funds several Earth science and astrophysics missions the budget request sought to terminate, as well as NASA's education office. It only provides $15 million for low Earth orbit commercialization efforts, versus a request of $150 million.
