SCIENCE, AERONAUTICS, and TECHNOLOGY
NASA's ``Science, aeronautics and technology'' account provides funding for science, aeronautics and technology activities supporting the Agency. These activities include space science, biological and physical research, Earth science, aerospace technology and academic programs. This appropriation also provides for salaries and related expenses (including travel); design, repair, rehabilitation, and modification of facilities and construction of new facilities; maintenance and operation of facilities; and other operations activities supporting science, aeronautics, and technology programs.
The Committee recommends $9,044,500,000 for the Science, Aeronautics and Technology account, an increase of $200,000,000 above the President's request and $996,700,000 above the fiscal year 2002 enacted level.
