This Week at NASA: The State of NASA, Unscheduled Spacewalk and More.

Acting Administrator Robert Lightfoot discussed our Fiscal Year 2018 budget request on May 23, during his State of NASA address.

$19.1 billion is being requested for the agency, under the president's budget proposal, a sign, Lightfoot says reflects the president's and the administration's confidence in NASA. Lightfoot thanked employees and attributed the confidence reflected in the budget proposal to the work of thousands of people. Also, Unscheduled Spacewalk Outside Space Station, Space Launch System Engine Testing Heats Up, and Kepler Data Help Confirm Orbit of Exoplanet.
