Though Richard Branson became the first billionaire to cruise the space, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk seems to have won the space race. NASA has chosen to use his company’s Starship to land humans on the moon in 2024. The last crewed mission to the moon was in 1972. NASA’s three-part Artemis program will be launching humans into space for the mission. The third Artemis phase, where Starship will be leveraged, will also include a female astronaut. This is a gigantic step forward for gender equality. The program’s main goal is to keep the astronauts in orbit longer and keep them on the moon’s surface for comprehensive research. Their ultimate mission is to reach Mars. Want to learn more? Watch the video.
