New Delhi, August 29: When we give examples of inspirations to the world, Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams who are the names which are the pride of India. Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams were the first two Indian origin women to fly to space. Here is one more rising inspiration- Jaslin Kaur Josan becomes the first Indian Sikh woman to be selected by NASA for the Mars Expedition happening in 2030.
After Kalpana Chawla, Jasleen Kaur Josan has become the 2nd Indian Women and first Sikh women to be selected by NASA for the Mars Expedition happening in 2030. The mission called the Orion Mission will be the first man mission to the red planet and candidates were selected from around the world.
“It will likely take nine months to reach there, three months to stay there, and then another nine months to return. So it’s a 21-month mission in total”, said Jasleen Kaur. She shared that she and her family are more excited than nervous about the chance to go Mars.
The group will be the first to live and create a habitat on Mars and many people will not return. However, Jasleen is part of the two way mission where those going will return. The 2020 mission candidates will not return back to planet Earth. An earlier mission to Mars will take place in three years from now, although this is a one-way colonization mission where the group inhabiting Mars will not be returning to Earth. Josan is part of the two-way mission which is set to happen in 2030.
After Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams now Jasleen Kaur Josan has set an example for the world to look upto and get motivated to pursue their dreams. Indians are really proud of them.
