Meet 13-Yr-Old Girl Who Could Be The First Human To Land On Mars



The 13-year-old Alyssa Carson from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA, is training to become the first human to land on Mars.
Alyssa Carson has already spent the last nine years in training
The brave girl has already spent the last nine years training and hoping to take part in a manned-mission to Mars in 2033. The teenager had attended all three of Nasa’s world space camps, five-day training events for would-be astronauts.
During these events children blast off mini rockets, ride space flight simulators, try out zero gravity machines and test their physical ability. Speaking abiut her dream, Alyssa says: “I want to go to Mars because it is a place nobody has been. It is really deserted right now so I want to take that first step.
I think that I have a high chance of going to mars basically because I’ve been training for nine years so far. As I get older and continue to do more things the resume will just get longer and hopefully help me stand out and help me look unique compared to other people.”
A manned mission to Mars has been the subject of science fiction, engineering, and scientific proposals throughout the 20th century and into the 21st century. The plans comprise proposals not only to land on but in the end for settling on and terraforming Mars.
The United States has a number of robotic missions currently exploring Mars, with a sample-return planned for the future. However, the US does not currently have a launcher capable of sending humans to Mars.
