                                           GENERAL STATEMENT 
 

The Human Space Flight appropriation provides funding for NASA's human space flight activities.  This includes the on-orbit 
infrastructure (Space Station and Spacelab), transportation capability (Space Shuttle program, including operations, program 
support and performance and safety upgrades), and the Russian Cooperation program, which includes the flight activities 
associated with the cooperative research flights to the Russian Mir Space Station.  These activities are funded in the following 
budget line items: 
 

Space Station:  The Space Station will be an orbiting laboratory which will enable unique scientific and technological investigations 
in a microgravity environment and provide the essential understanding of the ability of humans to live and work in space for 
extended periods of time.  Funding will support continued development of the Space Station, which was significantly redesigned in 
1993 and now includes major participation by Russia. 
 

U.S./Russian Cooperative Program:  This program includes all flight activities in support of the joint space missions involving the 
Space Shuttle and the Russian Mir Space Station.  This includes the Shuttle and Spacelab-unique requirements associated with 
Shuttle flights to Mir, as well as the funding for contractual services and supplies to be provided by Russia in conjunction with the 
joint Mir program and the international Space Station.  Funding for experiments for the Mir flights is included in the Life and 
Microgravity Sciences and Applications and Space Station budgets. 
 

Space Shuttle:  This supports all the activities required for the continuing, safe operation of the Space Shuttle.  This includes the 
hardware and support services to maintain the Shuttle launch schedule, and funding for activities to enhance the safety and 
performance of the Space Shuttle. 
 

Payload Utilization and Operations:  Funding is provided for the support of payloads flying on the Shuttle and Spacelab, as well as 
advanced technology projects and Engineering and Technical Base support for the field centers supporting Human Space Flight 
activities.

                                           GENERAL STATEMENT 

 
The Science, Aeronautics and Technology appropriation provides funding for the research and development activities of NASA.  This 
includes funds to extend our knowledge of the Earth, its space environment, and the universe; to invest in new aeronautics and 
advanced space technologies which support the development and application of technologies critical to the economic, scientific and 
technical competitiveness of the United States.  These objectives are achieved through the following elements: 
 

Space Science:  This program conducts a broad spectrum of scientific investigations to advance our knowledge of the sun, the 
planets, interplanetary and interstellar space, and the stars of our galaxy and the universe. 
 

Life and Microgravity Sciences and Applications:  A program to identify and develop the technology for the useful applications of 
space techniques in the area of materials process research and experimentation, and to explore the effect of the zero-gravity 
environment of space on human physiology. 

 
Mission to Planet Earth:  A program to provide for the use of space systems, supported by ground-based and airborne observations, 
to acquire information which will assist in the solution of Earth resources and environmental problems. 
 

Aeronautical Research and Technology:  A program to conduct the fundamental long-term research to strengthen the United States 
leadership in aviation, and to pursue development of high leverage technologies required to support both the subsonic and high-
speed civil transport economic viability. 

 
Space Access and Technology:  A program to provide new and innovative space technologies to meet the challenges and lower the 
cost of future space missions. 
 

Mission Communication Services:  Funding for communications activities which are most directly related to NASA's science and 
aeronautics programs. 
 

Academic Programs:  A program to support Agencywide university, minority university, and elementary and secondary school 
programs.
