Of what year?

The duct tape supply chain might be more fluid by then, maybe.

And maybe it's time to re-focus some space expenditures on natural disaster preparedness in regions wholly and obviously susceptible to massive and almost apocalyptic natural disasters.  Especially when a few to several day natural disaster events that everybody and their mother anticipated to happen, probably again and again, cost 10s of billions of dollars.  Some of these regions like Florida or the Southwest are approaching uninhabitability.

But, hey, the Fed can conjure money out of thin air, right?  So, what is there to worry about?  And magical money fixes everything.

/My attitude may get better as the week progresses.

The whole program was cost plus, and it plussed a LOT of costs.  It's been wildly successful so far.  They don't want to jinx the program by launching the thing.  It could go on like this until 2030, easy.

NASA funding is a small drop in a very large bucket.  There are many places that we could take additional preparedness funding from that would just be a rounding error.

You can trim even just 5% of the military budget instead. It will be vastly greater than anything allocated to NASA (or most other federally-funded things), and it wouldn't even be noticeably missed by the military. This is especially true now that we know we no longer have to prepare for a major conflict with Russia.

NASA Budget, 2022 - 24BB
Defense Budget, 2022 (publicly acknowledged) - $801BB
Corporate Subsidies, 2022 - $170BB

I think we know where the fat is that can be trimmed...

Every year!  The launch window will be an annual event.  We'll roll it out to the pad then eventually roll it back in again.  It will be like christmas decorations, but a lot more expensive.
