Space: Strong Enough for a Man, but Made for a Woman
NASA announced four of its eight new astronauts are women.
“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I’m Possible,” said Audrey Hepburn.
Four women have proved those exact words.
The highest percentage of female astronauts ever has been selected by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
On Monday, the agency announced it has eight new astronauts, four of which are women.
Among them, is the first female fighter pilot to become an astronaut in almost 20 years.
They will report for duty in August.
The new candidates will be a part of the first human mission to an asteroid, then they will go to Mars, said Charles Bolden, NASA administrator.
Way to go, ladies!
