NASA is sending a girl to Mars and this is her plan
Elon Musk isn’t the only person working hard on getting humans to Mars. This girl’s name is Alyssa Carson and she has been training her whole life for a specific moment, which would be the departure to Mars!
Some of the well-known organizations who are already recruiting staff for the mission are SpaceX and of course, NASA. “You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great – and that’s what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It’s about believing in the future and thinking that the future will be better than the past. And I can’t think of anything more exciting than going out there and being among the stars,” Elon Musk, SpaceX.
In 2017, Musk held a presentation about how life will/should be multiplanetary. Needless to say, he managed to grab the necessary attention and prepare us all for the future of life.
SpaceX is already hard at work on delivering results, “Our aspirational goal is to send our first cargo mission to Mars in 2022. The objectives for the first mission will be to confirm water resources and identify hazards along with putting in place initial power, mining, and life support infrastructure. A second mission, with both cargo and crew, is targeted for 2024, with primary objectives of building a propellant depot and preparing for future crew flights. The ships from these initial missions will also serve as the beginnings of our first Mars base, from which we can build a thriving city and eventually a self-sustaining civilization on Mars,” as stated on their website.
A girl on Mars
Alyssa already set the foundation when it comes to being the first person to complete the NASA Passport program, by visiting 14 NASA Visitor centers. She’s also the youngest person to graduate from the Advanced Possum Academy.
All of the above makes her qualified to go to space and become a NASA trainee.
A dream come true
The 17-year-old girl from Louisiana aims to take place in NASA’s mission to Mars, in 2033. The eventual objective would be to establish presence on Mars, which could one day save the human species from extinction.
Good Luck Alyssa!
