NASA pioneering in lifting female astronaut to Moon

NASA, the US space agency, plans to send a female astronaut to the Moon for the first time in 2024, work on landing system begins.

Preparations have been started for this. Also, three big companies have been selected for this project.

According to estimates, NASA will pay $ 1.79 billion to the three companies for this project. Earlier, ISRO launched the Chandrayaan-2 mission from India for the exploration of the Moon, which failed.

According to NASA, three companies have been selected for the design and construction of the lander, which includes space company Space X, Blue Origin, and Dynamics. It has two companies owned by renowned billionaires Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos.

According to NASA’s plan, these companies have been given the important responsibility of the project. These companies will design the landing system. For which they will be paid $ 1.79 billion within ten months. Blue Origin Company will pay the highest in this.

SpaceX has been detailed to develop a lunar optimized Starship, which will carry crew between lunar orbit and the surface of the Moon as part of NASA’s Artemis program!

Earlier, the US launched the Apollo mission in December 1972. Under this mission, America sent the man to the Moon for the first time, then Neil Armstrong put his foot on the Moon for the first time. At the same time, NASA is planning to send a female astronaut to the Moon. If all goes well, in 2024, a man and a woman will be landed on the lunar surface.

In the past, during six two-person landing missions, twelve astronauts walked on the lunar surface, and six of those drove Lunar Roving Vehicles.

No human being has gone beyond this low Earth orbit, apart from these 24 men. Three flew to the Moon twice, one orbiting both times and two landings once apiece. If not the greatest, landing 14 people on the Moon remains one of NASA’s achievements.

During the Apollo program, those week-long stays didn’t establish a lasting human presence on the Moon, astronauts were supposed to collect rocks, take photos, perform experiments, plant some flags, and then came home. Apollo 17 in December 1972, more than 45 years after the recent crewed moon landing – there are so many reasons to return to Earth’s giant, dusty satellite and stay on the Moon.

Entrepreneurs and Researchers think a crewed base on the Moon could evolve into a fuel depot for deep-space missions, lead to making it easier to live on Mars, creation of modern space telescopes, and solve scientific mysteries about Earth and nature of Moon.

A lunar base could be a thriving off-world economy, perhaps one built around lunar space tourism.
