The U.S. Senate has passed a spending bill that will allocate NASA $10 billion. The U.S. Innovation and Competition Act passed through the Senate on a 68-32 vote. The bill aims to boost America's competitiveness in the industrial and technological sectors. The bill grants NASA approximately $10 billion for the development of private crewed moon landers. The space agency’s Artemis program will use the moon landers to establish a human presence on the moon. NASA announced in April that it had awarded SpaceX a contract to use its Starship vehicle as the Artemis lander. This new allocation of funds will enable them to fund the development of a second crewed vehicle for the program.
