NASA has announced that it plans to land the first person to color the moon as part of its Artemis program on Friday. Acting NASA Administrator Steve Jurcyzk made the announcement in a statement regarding the Biden administration’s request for funding for NASA. He said that in addition to sending the first woman to the moon, the company would be able to land a person of the first caste.
“The President’s prudent request enhances NASA’s ability to better understand the Earth and further observe and predict the effects of climate change,” Jurcyzk said in a statement. “As well as landing the first woman and the first person of color on the moon under the Artemis program, it also provides the necessary resources to continue America’s bilateral lunar advancement in space exploration plans.”
The Biden administration has requested $24.7 billion as part of the agency’s 2022 budget. The money will support the Artemis program, which aims to establish a base camp on the lunar surface as well as bring astronauts back to the lunar surface by 2024. Last year the agency announced the first planning team of American astronauts to travel to the moon. The list included nine women and people of different castes.
The agency has had problems in the past when it comes to racing. A notable example is Ad Dwight, who became the first black astronaut in space as part of the Apollo program – but eventually cut off despite pressure from the Kennedy administration. Therefore, when we land these astronauts on the moon, it will be a historic moment … and it will be a long time coming.
In addition, the first woman to land on the moon through the Artemis program, NASA will land the first person of color, NASA Acting Administrator Steve Jurczyk revealed today (April 9). Today, President Joe Biden’s administration submitted a budget proposal to Congress outlining the discretionary spending priorities for fiscal year 2022. The proposed budget includes a fundraising that will support the return of Mars samples, research, climate science and much more from NASA. Jurassic responded to the news in a NASA statement and revealed that the agency would land the first person to color the moon through the Artemis program, with the goal of bringing humans back to the lunar surface.
