(Cape Canaveral, FL) -- NASA needs more money to support what it calls the world's best workforce.

That's what NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said this week after President Biden revealed his budget request for Fiscal Year 2024.

It includes more than 27 billion dollars for NASA. That's up seven percent and almost two billion dollars from the current fiscal year.

Nelson says the extra funding will allow for more crewed missions to the International Space Station and, eventually, humanity's return to the moon.
