Yesterday, NASA named the four astronauts who will fly to the moon by the end of next year, including one woman and three men. The three Americans and one Canadian were introduced during a ceremony in Houston, home to the nation’s astronauts as well as Mission Control.
The four astronauts will be the first to fly NASA’s Orion capsule, launching atop a Space Launch System rocket from Kennedy Space Center, and are expected to launch by the end of this year. The four astronauts include; mission commander, Reid Wiseman, Victor Glover who is a naval aviator, Christina Koch, who holds the world record for the longest spaceflight by a woman, and Canada’s Jeremy Hansen. All are space veterans except Hansen.
