First time in history - NASA will send a female astronaut to the moon

Science & Tech A- A A+

In history, only male astronauts travelled on the sun of our night - Moon.

NASA organized a new lunar mission, but this time for female astronaut, Science Alert reported.

For starters, there will be a seat on the 2024 lunar mission specially reserved for a woman, the first to ever walk on the Moon. The program itself makes a sort-of bow to gender equality: it's named for the Greek goddess and twin sister of Apollo, the venerable Artemis.

"Fifty years after Apollo, the Artemis program will carry the next man and first woman to the Moon," said Bridenstine during a press call, according to CNN.

Symbolic or no, it will be the first time that a woman has ever walked across the surface of Earth's grey satellite.
