How much money did the united states spend in grants for space research?
i am doing a thesis paper about how the great space race was not a waste of time and money. one of my points of argument is that the government gave many grants to universities for research. i am looking for a number that shows how much money the government gave to schools to do space research.
Download the data from the US Census Bureau’s Federal Assistance Award Data System (FAADS) which is a database of all grant monies that the government gives. You’ll find your grants for space research in there, plus the program titles, recipients and amount
