Interactive video lesson plan for: Bolden Testifies About Budget on This Week @NASA

Activity overview:

In his testimony before Congress during the first week of March, NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden outlined the return on investment legislators can expect from the $18.5 billion dollars proposed for the agency under President Obama’s FY 2016 budget. The funding allows NASA to continue on the Journey to Mars – with development of vehicles and technologies needed for unprecedented human missions, first to an asteroid and then on to the Red Planet. The budget request and current contract schedules support certification, by the end of 2017, of commercial vehicles being developed to launch American astronauts from U.S. soil on round-trip missions to the International Space Station. It also further enables the agency’s quest to improve life on Earth – with technologies for greener, quieter aviation and investigations to enhance the health of our planet’s climate. Also, NASA spacecraft arrives at dwarf planet, Space station ready for new docking ports, One-year crew in pre-flight training, Steve Swanson visit and 100th birthday of NACA!
