NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine wants a woman to carry on the legacy of Neil Armstrong when humans first go to Mars he said in a guest appearance on the Science and technology radio show “Science Friday”. He also said that regardless of who will set foot on the red planet there will absolutely be a woman in the space agency’s next trip to the moon.
He stated that NASA is committed to making sure that they have a broad and diverse set of talent and we’re looking forward to the first woman on the moon. He said last month “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,”
Collaborations have been made between NASA, as well as partners in the private sphere including companies that will build out the lunar economy in efforts to bring humans back to both the moon and to Mars.
The Space tech Company says that some of the most pressing challenges it faces before it can go to Mars include understanding how humans adapt to living in space, and how to handle trash waste. Mr Bridenstine previously stated that NASA's nearer-term goal is to get astronauts back to the moon and to establish a permanent base there for the first time in human history.
