He also said the United States will have astronauts on the moon again in less than 10 years and this time, he says, 'we will stay'. Chances are the first person to land on the red planet will be a woman, the head of NASA said recently.
Bridenstine went on to share NASA's plans for the future in a statement on NASA's website explaining how, with newly innovated technology, we could start to see a more diverse group of astronauts traveling to space in the future.
NASA's massive new rocket won't be ready for a moon shot next year, the space agency's top official told Congress on Wednesday. The spacewalk, which is scheduled for March 29, will feature astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch, who will be supported by women on the ground, including NASA flight director Mary Lawrence and CSA control team member Kristen Facciol. First, they'd like for a woman to take a step onto the Moon. "So between now and June of 2020, we would have to make that a reality", Bridenstine said. The spaceship became the first commercial spacecraft to dock at the International Space Station.
Currently, women comprise 34 per cent of its active astronauts, according to the agency. We feel lucky that it [the all-female spacewalk] just sort of happened to be in Women's History Month'.

Samsung to launch new cheaper flagship smartphone
For the last several months, rumors have been swirling that Samsung has codenamed the Galaxy Note 10 "Da Vinci". Samsung is apparently working on a budget flagship that's going to be priced lower than the Galaxy S10e .
Solid rocket boosters for the Space Launch System will be stacked at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral. "At $21 billion, this budget represents a almost 6 percent increase over last year's request and comes at a time of constrained resources across the federal government".
NASA is now studying whether to send its first Orion crew capsule and first European Service Module into space on a big commercial rocket, "launch a second heavy-lift rocket to put an upper stage into orbit around the Earth and then dock those two together to throw around the moon the Orion crew capsule with the European Space Module", Bridenstine said.
Earth's Moon was once assumed to be a dry and dusty place, but over time that image has changed. New Budget Defers Funding of New Space Launch System One of the casualties of the 2020 budget is the development of an upgraded SLS known as Block 1B version.
Construction on Gateway - an orbiting lunar outpost - is expected to begin construction as soon as 2022. Such a scenario could mean that the SLS' first true liftoff to space would have astronauts aboard, with no preliminary uncrewed launch.
