NASA is training 17 YEAR OLD for mission to MARS!

posted by Sam -

Alyssa Carson is a 17 year old that has been training for her mission since she was 8 years old. NASA is preparing Carson for their mission to Mars in 2033; by then she will be 32 (yeah, she was born in 2001).

Behind me is the original LEM design that later got changed! So much fun speaking to girls at Cradle of Aviation and working with Microsoft on this project

Seriously, watch the video! The stuff this teen has already accomplished (she speaks 4 languages, trained scuba diver, has her pilots license)! When I was 17, I was worried about going away to college, not SPACE.  

Did you watch the part where her Dad talks about her going to Mars (not having a family, the bittersweet moment?) I CRIED. 

Last practice before my flight. T-30min!
