Meet the women of NASA gunning for Mars

Mars. A next step for man? Yes, and a giant leap for womankind.

Half of NASA’s latest class of astronauts are women — and they’re about to spend fifteen years (!) prepping to go to Mars.

NOTE: This article is from a year ago, about the last class – there’s a new class of incoming astronauts being sorted out now. Apologies, I goofed when looking at the timestamp – still not used to the 2016/7 turnover. Still a good article!

    How exciting for them! How brave they are and how courageous. To be among the first in any endeavour takes guts and character. I will be in my 70’s when these missions happen, I know I’ll be watching every available newscast and wishing I was there with them.
