First Person On Mars Likely To Be A Woman

NASA unearthing the secrets of untouched moon samples

He replied: 'Absolutely. These are great days.' Bridenstine added: 'The first person on Mars is likely to be a woman.

The U.S. space agency announced Monday, March 11 that it had selected nine teams to study "pieces of the Moon that have been carefully stored and untouched for almost 50 years".

His comments come ahead of the first all female spacewalk scheduled to take place at the end of the month.

Bridenstein's announcement follows another major update for women in space: Later this month, NASA is conducting the first all-female spacewalk.

Bridenstine said the SLS program would continue, with a "full-up green run test" to be conducted at NASA's Stennis Space Center in MS in preparation for the crewed EM-2 launch, which is now scheduled for 2023. It's a huge step for women in regards to their placement at NASA, because the first female astronauts were introduced in 1968 (a year before Armstrong stood on the Moon), and still, there haven't been women on the Moon or making a big exploration by themselves.

"Between now and June of 2020 we would have to make that a reality", he said. Jackie Kagey will be the lead spacewalk flight controller.

The first six women selected to be NASA astronauts: (back row, left to right) Kathryn Sullivan, Shannon W. Lucid, Anna L. Fischer, Judith Resnik, (seated left to right) Sally K. Ride and M. Rhea Seddon.

NASA's Stephanie Schierholz told Space.com: 'It really is the luck of the draw. Currently, women make up 31 per cent of active astronauts at Nasa.

NASA's Parker Solar Probe is launched on at Cape Canaveral, Fla.

"In fact, it's likely to be a woman, the first next person on the moon", Bridenstine said on the show. "At $21 billion, this budget represents a almost 6 percent increase over last year's request and comes at a time of constrained resources across the federal government". Bridenstine stated, "when we go to the Moon, we will stay".

Forget everything you've learned about men and Mars. The spending plan also opens the door for using commercial rockets to deliver the first elements of the worldwide Gateway space platform to lunar orbit. The shift in focus will likely result in several missions slated to be launched aboard the rocket shifted to commercial partners, including the construction of the agency's lunar-orbit space station. Such a scenario could mean that the SLS' first true liftoff to space would have astronauts aboard, with no preliminary uncrewed launch.
