'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'.
This is what Twitterati is saying about NASA's declaration.
