It's the combined bipartisan effort nobody saw coming; to support space exploration and scientific research which is mutually beneficial. The funding will go to some major projects including: Europa , Orion, SLS (Space launch system). Keep in mind that all these projects have very near dates within a few years.

I also should add the categorization of exoplanets.
