NASA is set to make history with its plans to send the first woman to the moon in 2024.
The stage is being set for not only “one small step for man,” but one huge footprint for women around the world.
NASA’s Artemis program is the mission with ambition to put the first woman on the moon.

“We’re going back to the moon for scientific discovery, economic benefits, and inspiration for a new generation of explorers. As we build up a sustainable presence, we’re also building momentum toward those first human steps on the Red Planet,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a release.
According to the release, Artemis I is on track to launch without astronauts, while Artemis II is scheduled to fly with a crew in 2023. In 2024 Artemis III will attempt to land astronauts on the lunar South Pole.
The groundbreaking mission will include finding resources such as water that can be converted into oxygen and fuel.
More importantly, we’re counting the days to hear who the lucky lady will be leading us back to the moon and into space history.
