One of the most important conferences this year was held yesterday at the Space Center. Kennedy in Florida, where Mike Pence, the vice president of the United States, also appeared. NASA presented eighteen people, three of whom will be the first to land on the moon in the 21st century. The rest will take part in further missions under the Artemis program.
Some time ago, the agency's administrator announced that he would like to see the first woman on the surface of the Silver Globe. Experts believe that the three-man Artemis III crew that will arrive on the moon in 2024 will be two men and one woman.
It is almost certain that the astronaut will come to the surface first. It is not known who will receive the honor, but rumors are that it will be Anne McClain or Christina Koch. Both were already aboard the International Space Station, and one of them, Christina Koch, even took a space walk.
Interestingly, Koch and Meir made the first female space walk in the history of the US space industry. This event took place in October 2019 (see here). NASA officials have repeatedly stated that in the 1920s they wanted to involve women more in space exploration programs. Women are also expected to land on the surface of Mars first.
Unofficially, it is also said that a black astronaut will participate in the first moon landing in the 21st century. Most likely it will be Victor Glover. Only white men participated in the Apollo missions carried out in the 1960s and 1970s. This is about to change now. When talking about Anne McClain, one of the moviesider who is indicated as the best candidate for a flight to the moon, it is worth adding that, as one of the entire group, Artemis does not hide the fact that she is a lesbian.
Other candidates presented by NASA for the exploration of the moon and its colonization are: Joe Acaba, Kayla Barron, Raja Chari, Matthew Dominick, Victor Glover, Warren Hoburg, Jonny Kim, Christina Koch, Kjell Lindgren, Nicole Mann, Anne McClain, Jessica Meir, Jasmin Moghbelim, Kate Rubins, Frank Rubio, Scott Tingle, Jessica Watkins, and Stephanie Wilson.
