NASA Is Preparing A 17 Year Old Girl To Become The First Human On Mars

Alyssa Carson fell in love with space when she was only 3 years old and now is making it her life’s work to be the first human to land on Mars.

The 17-year-old is training to be on the first NASA trip to the Red Planet, where she says she’ll spend two to three years.

It started with “The Backyardigans” — a TV show that features an episode called “Mission to Mars.” After watching the episode, the rest of her life would be focused on all things space.

“My dad had to go through everything with me. It was the best weekend of my life. I learned everything about space that I wanted to know. I kept going every year,” Carson said.

As of now, the mission to Mars is scheduled for 2033. They will travel in the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and use the Orion spacecraft.

“With the current technology, it will take 6 months to get to Mars. We will stay there for over a year because we have to wait for the planets to align together and then it is a nine-month trip back,” Carson said. “It’s a two- to three-year mission in total.”

Carson says she wants to make new discoveries and learn more about Mars. She says she will be looking at the water samples, seeing if they can find any signs of life and uncover the history.

“To understand what’s going on there and what resources we can find,” Carson said. “It’s something that I think is super important for us to accomplish.”Alyssa CarsonAlyssa Carson, 17, is preparing to be the first human on Mars (Photo: NASA Blueberry)

Until the mission to Mars, she will continue preparing and building her resume. Right now, she’s working on getting her pilot’s license, underwater survival training, scuba diving certification and more.

“Follow your dream. When I was three saying I wanted to go to Mars, it was absolutely insane. But now, I am out here doing actual training,” she said.

Nice script for a Hollywood film where all the adults are stupid and the only person who can carry out the important task is some super-awesome 17-year-old girl.

good luck to her. Though, it’s not as if NASA has already selected a crew for the first trip to Mars.

It sounds like she’s doing a lot to prepare to apply to be an astronaut. But the competition to become an astronaut is tough, from what I hear.

(Totally wrong thing to think about but)
Will she have a separate module to hold all the tampons? Pre and gulp, post? Or will she shoot herself up monthly with hormones to not ovulate?

Why not send her to Mars.
After all, she went to several Space Camps in Huntsville.

All good questions, which is why a penis positive woman (trans) might be a better choice than a penis negative.

good question.

I’ve heard NASA has secretly studied the issues of “sex” in space, as to how groups of astronauts might cope with various human feelings, when cooped up together in a small space, with a small group, on a long mission.

I haven’t heard though, what NASA officials have concluded about such issues in long space flights.

It must be pretty difficult if you have a fling with your fellow astronaut and it’s over and she is 2 inches from you every single day. And she starts up with your other co-pilot. Again. 2 inches from your face.

The left will be howling because she is White. The only way to please them is to send a trans/black/gay/Spanish-speaking/m*slim/with a peanut allergy and who uses alternate pronouns.

Do not mourn. Her life, tho’ likely brief, will have been both brave and exciting. I would have jumped at the adventure at her age.

A rat done bit my sister Nell.
(with Whitey on Mars)
Her face and arms began to swell.
(and Whitey's on Mars)
I can't pay no doctor bill.
(but Whitey's on Mars)
Ten years from now I'll be payin' still.

But, super-awesome 17 year olds can do anything! Just ask them.

NASA is SJW delusional.

Time for a thorough housecleaning, starting with anyone appointed during the Usurper’s administration or hired by such appointees!
