A female astronaut will finally get a shot to walk on the moon
Nasa has a plan to put the first woman on the surface of the moon by 2024 in a project the US space agency is calling Artemis, after the Greek goddess of the moon and twin sister of the god Apollo.
"The first woman will be an American on the surface of the moon in five years," Nasa administrator Jim Bridenstine said in April at the Space Symposium conference in Colorado Springs. "That is an extreme declaration and a charge that we are going to live up to at Nasa."..
