Mars has been the hot topic always we have heard, as it is known as the sister planet of Earth. We have seen many news coming up that we will be living on Mars one day. Research is going on to find out the necessities on Mars. NASA is so curious to know all this and has sent a probe to Mars successfully a few months back. When InSight Lander was launched then everyone was so excited to know whether it will land safely or not. Indeed the landing was so thrilling and we are getting great pictures and insights of Mars.
We are waiting eagerly for the day when a human will land on Mars and probably the day will come soon. Interestingly a woman will be landing on Mars for the first time ever. Head of NASA said in a statement that “Chances are the first person to land on the red planet will be a woman” Jim Bridenstine on a radio show ‘Science Friday’ admitted that a woman most likely be the first person to land on Mars. He also added that women will be the front face of every recent plan.
He replied to a tweet on Twitter where a girl asked: “that woman will be in the next trip to the moon.” He said “absolutely”

He also said, “These are great days.” NASA astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch will be going to space when the month ends. They will be doing spacewalk which will be for seven hours. NASA said, “Both McClain and Koch were part of the 2013 astronaut class, half of which were women. They came from the second largest applicant pool NASA ever has received — more than 6,100. The most recent class of flight directors was also 50% women”
Bridenstine said, “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.” NASA is having a total of 34% women astronauts and that is only increasing with the time. When they started then they had only six women in NASA’s astronaut corps.Tags: Anne McClain, astronauts, NASA
