NASA says the first person on Mars will likely be a woman

First Person On Mars Likely To Be A Woman NASA

Canadian Space Agency flight controller Kristen Facciol will be supporting McClain and Koch on the console at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. "I'm talking human-rated landers, compatible with Gateway, that can go back and forth to the surface of the moon".

Scientists explained how Lyman Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP) measurements of the layer of molecules temporarily stuck to the surface helped determine the moon's lunar hydration changes. Water amount on the Moon was also said to be dependent on the time of the day and the location.

More recently, they have identified surface water in sparse populations of molecules bound to the lunar soil (regolith). This water is more common at higher latitudes and tends to hop around as the surface heats up.

Water molecules remain tightly bound to the regolith until surface temperatures peak near lunar noon. They would go from one place to another, searching for the next cold spot that would allow them to stick to the Moon's weak atmosphere.

The teams have been handed a combined budget of $8 million to study the lunar samples in the hopes of deepening NASA's understanding of the Moon.

Web inventor urges users to seek 'complete control' of data
But as the web expands, it continues to experience numerous growing pains and the digital divide continues to widen. In 1992, Berners-Lee needed a photo to test out the World Wide Web's new image-hosting capabilities.

In Bridenstine's published statement today, he summarizes: "Beginning with a series of small commercial delivery missions to the Moon as early as this year, we will use new landers, robots and eventually humans by 2028 to conduct science across the entire lunar surface".

Scientists have hypothesized that hydrogen ions in the solar wind may be the source of most of the Moon's surface water. "Lunar water can potentially be used by humans to make fuel or to use for radiation shielding or thermal management; if these materials do not need to be launched from Earth, that makes these future missions more affordable". We have the first all-female spacewalk happening this month at the end of March, which is of course, National Women's month.

The news comes ahead of the first ever all-female space walk planned by the space agency at the end of this month.

Anne McCain and Christina Koch will jet off to the International Space Station (ISS) in two days. Pictured: The moon during the UEFA Europa League Round of 32 Second Leg match between FC Internazionale and SK Rapid Wien at San Siro on February 21, 2019 in Milan, Italy.
