NASA is planning another Moon mission with manned spacecraft in the next five years, possibly in 2024. The mission is named as Artemis moon mission, and NASA is considering sending an all-female crew with the spacecraft on the moon. This is the first time NASA has considered sending females on the moon, as this is never done before by any Space Agency. As of now, this is just a speculation, but if it comes true, it would be a historic moment for humanity when All-female crew lands on Lunar Surface.
Current NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine hosted a talk for Engineering Students at the University of Colorado Boulder on Friday. He hosted a lecture for students and also answered the questions from Students. The University live-streamed the entire talk session of Jim Bridenstine on Official handles. In the end, one student asked Jim Bridenstine if the Agency has considered sending all-female crew for the upcoming Moon mission. He said that they had considered it and there should be nothing surprising if NASA actually finalizes a full-female team. According to the answers from Bridenstine, NASA has not completed a roster for the Artemis mission and still in the search for a right contestant.
Bridenstine said that they are still in search of the right candidate. There is a high possibility that at least two females will make it to the final Artemis Mission roster in the coming five years. NASA is building a new rocket that will take the spacecraft to the Lunar orbit. The new rocket would be the most powerful rocket that humans ever made to launch any spacecraft. The team at NASA is currently facing technical issues in building the rockets, thus the delays in the official unveiling of the Space Launch System rocket. Once that is done, NASA will confirm the exact dates of the Artemis mission and the crew that will make it to the moon.
