The budget request of the administration of the President of the United States Donald trump (Donald Trump) in the 2019 financial year requires the cessation of work on a major NASA space Observatory and five missions for science about the Earth. Educational project NASA will also stop working.

Broadband infrared telescope (WFIRST), which is to use an existing spy satellite does not receive funding, the project will be minimized. According to the budget request of the White house to 2019, published February 12, WFIRST would require significantly increased funding. Instead, the budget proposal contains a request for funding was sent on a small mission in astrophysics.

Also no projects will be funded Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, Ocean Ecosystem (PACE), a project of studying the effects of hydrocarbons on climate Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3 (OCO-3) Observatory for the study of climate Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory (CLARREO), a Radiation Budget Instrument (RBI) and facilities for Earth observation in the framework of the mission on space climate Observatory (DSCOVR).
WFIRST would give scientists the field to study the sky in infrared light 100 times greater than Hubble. It would allow scientists to investigate dark energy, dark matter, the evolution of the Universe and distant planets around other stars. This space telescope would cost no less than $ 3.6 billion.
