Nasa has HUGE plans in store and will likely have the first person to walk on Mars be a WOMAN!
Happy Women’s History Month! Let’s get it ladies!
During a guest appearance on the science and technology radio show “Science Friday,” Nasa administrator, Jim Bridenstine, teased that the first person on Mars is “likely to be” a woman. What better than to have a woman carry on the legacy of Neil Armstrong’s success in space!?
Regardless if this is true, women will “absolutely” be included on the space agency’s next trip to the moon.
“Nasa is committed to making sure we have a broad and diverse set of talent and we’re looking forward to the first woman on the moon,” he said.
Nasa stated that Nasa’s goal is to get astronauts back to the moon to establish a permanent base base on the moon for the first time in history!
“We are going to the moon with innovative new technologies and systems to explore more locations across the surface than we ever thought possible. This time, when we go to the moon, we will stay,” he said last month.
