Women have been integral to accommodate journey — from commanding the ISS to calculating the maths to ship us into home safely.⁠

And now NASA says the next astronaut to the contact down on the Moon will “in all probability be a woman.” Nevertheless not all people agrees with this plan. Retired NASA astronaut and former Worldwide Space Station commander Peggy Whitson is rebuking NASA’s plan, saying she doesn’t assume gender should have one thing to do with the Moonwalker decision. Faucet the hyperlink in our bio to study further.⁠

  • Gender shouldn’t play a role in a mission where lives are on the line. If a female is more qualified then a male, fine by me. When you pick a second rate astronaut just because of their gender, then you are endangering the life of the crew and the success of the mission.

  • I think gender is an even bigger myth than the moon landing @futurism

  • Competency is the only thing that matters. Everything else is PR.

  • I agree with her. I’d be fairly upset if I was chosen because I was a woman rather than being chosen because I was the best person for the job- especially if I’d worked as hard as she has. Success tastes better when you’ve earned it.

  • I mean, it should be the best qualified so if the woman is best, send her! If not, it isn’t sexist or anything even if it may seem so 😓

  • Like some comments below, it’s not gender science, it’s rocket science. Agreed with Peggy

  • I agreed with her stance, it’s about capability, regardless of their gender.

  • Peggy Whitson, you now have a new admirer. Put competence over gender, race, nationality. We’re better than that, women are equal to men. No need to pander.
