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!
