‘Men are from Mars, women are from Ve…’
Yeah that’s right. Coz the first woman to land on Mars is ‘likely to be’ a woman.
According to CNN, Jim Bridenstine, the Head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said in a recent interview on Science Friday,
It is also true that the first person on Mars is likely to be a woman.
While he did not identify a particular person, he claimed that women are at the forefront of the upcoming plans.
NASA will also have its first all-female spacewalk by the end of the month.
Two U.S. astronauts, Anne McClain and Christina Koch, will leave on March 29 for the spacewalk, which will last for about 7 hours.
Bridenstine also added,
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.
In response to a Twitter user’s question whether women will be a part of NASA’s next trip to the moon, he said ‘absolutely’.
@scifri Great show right now! Since it’s #InternationalWomensDay please ask your guest if returning to the moon will include a woman on the moon — something that’s never happened!— Shannon Coulter (@shannoncoulter) March 8, 2019
This is what Twitterati is saying about NASA’s declaration.

Women will land first on Mars #Mars #WomanOnMars #NASA #MarsAttack
I’m excited about this, bc Women are bad ass. And it also basically concedes that we haven’t been on the moon yet (because we haven’t)!— Cody Trotter (@cody_trott) March 12, 2019
