Here is a breakdown on NASA's 2008 budget:
- Total Budget $17.3 Billion (as requested)
- Exploration $3.84 Billion (~$81 Million cut)
- $76 of the $81 Million cut came from COTS leaving it $160 Million
A new COTS participant should be selected next month, but it is unclear how much money will be available to them in 2008.
