NASA boss says first person on Mars 'likely to be a woman'

"I'm talking human-rated landers, compatible with Gateway, that can go back and forth to the surface of the moon".

'We recently converted the LAMP's light collection mode to measure reflected signals on the lunar dayside with more precision, allowing us to track more accurately where the water is and how much is present'.

As the temperature on the surface of the Moon increases, water is said to "bounce" around. Then, molecules thermally desorb and can bounce to a nearby location that is cold enough for the molecule to stick or populate the moon's extremely tenuous atmosphere or exosphere, until temperatures drop and the molecules return to the surface.

Scientists explained how Lyman Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP) measurements of the layer of molecules temporarily stuck to the surface helped determine the moon's lunar hydration changes. He also said the United States will have astronauts on the moon again in less than 10 years and this time, he says, 'we will stay'.

According to Amanda Hendrix, a Planetary Science Institute senior scientist and lead author of the new paper, the existence of lunar water will be critical for future missions because this could cut the costs needed to launch a mission given that they would no longer need to carry or export such resource from Earth.

Scientists have hypothesized that hydrogen ions in the solar wind may be the source of most of the Moon's surface water.

Woods on Valspar, WGC-Match Play: Let's see how this week goes
Valspar is one of only two realistic tournaments remaining for Woods to play before the Masters in early April. He also has dealt with an Achilles' heel problem and what he described as a left arm issue at the 2013 U.S.

In Bridenstine's published statement today, he summarizes: "Beginning with a series of small commercial delivery missions to the Moon as early as this year, we will use new landers, robots and eventually humans by 2028 to conduct science across the entire lunar surface".

So, is it time for a woman to walk on the Moon? Thanks to NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), the discovery of the "hopping" liquid can pave the way for more lunar explorations. They will head up on March 29 to work on upgrades to the International Space Station. If all goes well in the succeeding tests, Musk could be sending more people in space in the near future.

The NASA administrator did not identify a specific person, but said women are at the forefront of the agency's upcoming plans.

NASA will also have its first all-female spacewalk at the end of the month, when astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch will get to float around in space.

"NASA found "hopping" liquid" on the moon recently.
