While this "man" was considered inclusive, Neil Armstrong's comments were also representative of Apollo Era's Astronaut Corps 50 years ago. Twelve Americans walked the moon, all the men. Indeed, it was not until 1983, more than decades after Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took their historic moon, that Sally Reed had traveled in space and became the first American woman to leave our planet. According to NASA, of the 347 Americans flew into space, 49 of them were women.
Now NASA intends to make the moon a joint one. His new lunar program, Artemis, has the ambitious timeline for returning the moon in 2024, and the space agency has promised that this time a woman will make the trip.
The landing of a woman on the moon can inspire the whole generation of young women, says NASA Administrator Jim Britindyn. "I have an 1
While NASA holds Mom about who will be female astronaut, in a recent interview with CNN Business,
"I think this can be transformational for young women, everywhere, not just in the country but anywhere in the world. Bridental has given a few details … and we
Here's the hints:
She's already in the astronaut corps. "We are looking for the most qualified candidates and we have incredibly talented and highly qualified candidates."
There are 38 active astronauts in the NASA astronaut corps, 12 of them are women aged 40 to 53, physicians, CIA agents, scientists, and military pilots NASA has an incredible pool to escape Here are:
Auón- The Chancellor was elected to the Astronaut Corps in 2009. She was Deputy Head of Orion Medical Operations, she only flew to space once in 2018 when she had completed a long stay at the International Space Station by doing 197 days in space. Tracy Caldwell Dyson
Selected for Astronaut in 1998 Tracy has flown twice to ISS, once aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavor in 2007 when she recorded 12 days in space, and then again in 2010 when she boarded a Russian ship called Soyuz. Her second job at the ISS is a long-term mission, where Dyson invades 176 days and conducts three space transitions. He has a doctorate. Chemistry.
Epps was selected as an astronaut in 2009. Before joining NASA, Epps was at the Ford Motor Company where her work led to a US patent. He then worked for the Central Intelligence Agency for seven years as a technical intelligence officer. Epps currently works at the ISS Branch on operations supporting ISS crews.
Janet has not yet arrived in space. She was appointed to be a flight engineer for an expedition in 2018 but was replaced by Serena Aunon-chancellor. It is unclear why she was removed from the mission. Koch is an engineer and is currently on board the space station for his first space flight. She arrived at the ISS in March and must stay until February 2020, which means she is expected to spend almost one year in space. If the schedule is maintained, it will surpass Peggy Whitson, which currently holds the title of the longest space flight of a woman with 288 days in space.
Koch recently made his first cosmic walk. Many see it as a leader in the Artemis race.
Selected for the Astronauts Program in 2013, Mann is an engineer and is currently being trained for Boeing's first tested flight Starliner Starcraft, built for NASA's commercial program may start before the end of the year. She is also a former military pilot.
She led the astronaut corps into the development of NASA's Space Orion and the Space Launch System rocket that the space agency plans to use for the moon mission. But Mann did not fly to the ISS. Meanwhile, Maccart served as mission specialist on board the last space shuttle trip to the Hubble Space Telescope in 2009, recording almost 13 days in space . She has a Ph.D. degree. in oceanography, and completed his postgraduate study at the Scripps Institute in San Diego, California.
Macarthur has not traveled to the International Space Station. Ann McClane
McClellan was elected to NASA's astronaut corps in 2013, an engineer, army colonel and senior army aviator who collected over 2000 hours of flight in 20 different planes. She is currently on the space station and has conducted two space transitions. She will return on Monday, June 24th, and will register for just over 6 months in space. Her call sign in the animal and at age 40, she is the youngest member of the astronaut corps.
Meir was selected by NASA in 2013 in the Astronaut Program. Daughter of two immigrants, she has completed biology, marine biology and space studies and is a private pilot.
She worked for Lockheed Martin from 2000 to 2003, supporting the research of human physiology, and spent some time in a NASA offshore habitat off the coast of Florida called Neemo.
Meir has not yet reached the cosmos, but she plans to fly to the ISS later this year and will stay there for six months.
Selected by NASA in 2009 for the Corps of the Astronauts, Rubin registers 115 days in space on the ISS board in 2016. Rubin is a microbiologist who has conducted large-scale studies measles, Ebola and Marburg viruses.
Rubin is the first person to arrange DNA in space and conducts two space walks. Shannon Walker
He was joining the Astronauts Corps in 2004 and spent 163 days in space in 2010. She was a physicist during the training and served as an engineer at mission time.
She has a bachelor's degree in Physics and Masters and Doctor of Space Physics from Rice University. Steven Wilson
Wilson was elected as an astronaut corps in 1996 and has completed more space travel than any of her colleagues. She has run three space shuttle missions: in 2006 , 2007 and 2010 Wilson has recorded more than 42 days in space.
She has a bachelor's degree in engineering from Harvard and a master's degree in Aerospace Engineering from Texas University. Her postgraduate study is funded by a NASA scholarship and focuses on the control and modeling of large, flexible structures in space.
Williams was elected as an astronaut in 1998. in space, first in 2006 when he completed four space walks and spent more than six months at the space station. He completed his second mission in 2012, during which he spent four months in space.
He is currently being trained to be an astronaut at Boeing's Starliner and is scheduled to conduct his third long-term space mission aboard the ISS. Williams has spent a total of 322 days in space with more than 50 hours of space exploration.
