Ah good,the trip won't leave until 2030 so this girl will be 28 at launch..
For a moment I thought they were wanting to send a 13 year old to Mars.


There was a thread a few days ago about someone who had dreams or visions of kids a young as 5 being enrolled into NASAs secret space program...Bizarre timing.

Great, now TPTB can blame this little girl for the imminent alien invasion.

Slimy reptilian scum.

Remember when you were young you thought you were 10 foot tall and indestructible


Are you talking about youth or a tequila night?


Peace

I do not believe NASA will ever get there and get the rocket & equipment there for a return trip , but it is a good fairy story for the young as nothing great has happened since i was a child in the space industry.

This will boil down to a private mission with NASA buying a seat due to the cost in my life time , but if they go Nuclear as was planned in the 50s & 60s anything is possible .

But they will have to crack the moon first to get any problems fixed first

Peace
Youth and whisky for me
I used to do things in nuclear plants and welding inspection that i thought if you cannot see it it could not hurt you , plus it helped if you were hung over and brain dead after 7x 12 shifts any safety eqipt was for the weak


We live and learn and go to funerals every week now

i have mixed feelings about this. Grooming a kid for a suicide mission is quite macabre. That said...if she is truly picking her fate (as the story seems to want us to believe) then it is the fulfillment of her lifes mission here in this reality.

Provocative story.

I think the point is that the first missions to Mars would not necessarily be a suicide mission. I bet her plan is to come home, too.

How is she going to get there without Stanley Kubrick? Who is going to build the Mars sets?..

Kubrick's visions of the Moon in 2001: A Space Odyssey were not very realistic, so I'm not sure if he could have built a realistic Mars set:

In all fairness, the spaceship was much more realistic than often found in other science fiction movie offerings. What I always found hte most unrealistic of all was it all happened in 2001.

2030 Eh?

The way the US goverment treats NASA and leaves it floundering and aimless the only way I can see her step foot on mars by 2030 is if she becomes chinese.


Unless the US goverment stops raping NASA and messing its prioritys about NASA wonr be leaving low earth orbit,


Its needs a solid goal and a solid direction.


Not politicians useing it for pork barrel projects and forceing it to change its goals every election.

Good for her!

And props to the dad for going all out to help her.

Sounds like the kind of guy that should adopt.

She's been working with NASA for 9 years, so I think she is owed this trip.

Brave? Yes. A pioneer in the making? Without a doubt. Had a childhood? Extremely doubtful.

She has had her childhood stolen, so she is due a payback. Fair play to her, I say.

Why? Rocketry is fairly rudimentary when it comes to propulsion.

Rockets use way to much fuel to get to Mars and take of again 10 plus Apollo rockets would be needed to get the gear into orbit i imagine but the ion engines could do it maybe , if they ever solve the weight issue of landing there ..

i remember hearing of this project en.wikipedia.org... and with the mess that fukishima is kicking out every day why not try this for a project and a lot quicker than lifting a puny 100 + tons at a time

Its maybe also because one of the parents are talking her head full of this. But I could be wrong , some really have a mission to achieve. But mostly its just like sports parents pushing their kids to top whatever the costs.

Well she's still young and who knows when puberty kicks in she maybe likes parties and boys more then going to Mars?

Bold vision for this young lady, good on her. I think we will need to learn to appreciate the amazing planet we already have here before we succeed in inhabiting another.

Great to hear of young people interested in science and the cosmos.

There is no way there will be any Mars mission in 2030 though, more like 2050!

Well, well, well!

I think it is fantastic that this little girl is living the dream. To those who are suggesting that this young lady is not having a childhood, I think that might be considered a somewhat narrow view. When I was young I wanted to go to space, not because I wanted to be famous, but because I wanted to know what was up there. I wanted to see the "dark" side of The Moon with my own two eyes, crumble alien soil beneath the gloves of a space suit, experience the differences in gravity between our planet and others, and take steps untrodden by other human beings.

She has parents who not only supported her dream notionally, but had the backing financially to allow this young lady to follow her heart and mind, locked on as they were to destination: discovery.

The only difference between this youngster, and many others world wide, is that she was lucky enough to be born into a situation where the education she was able to access was of a high standard, and her parents affluent enough to help her launch her dreams through the atmosphere of potential, and into the orbital plane of likelihood and probability. The more power to her I say.

If I had been in the same position she is, when I was her age... Well, let's just say that living my life at that age lost me my childhood, and even if this young lady has lost her childhood through involvement with this program, then there are worse ways to do it!

Personally, I think assuming that she has lost out as a result of all this is fallacious. Being young and determined to succeed in achieving ones goal does not mean that one is missing out. Childhood is often not all it is cracked up to be, and to be totally realistic, it is a block of time, not an institution. If a child wants to spend their time learning things, and preparing themselves for great endeavours, rather than cavorting mindlessly and absorbing group think, then I for one am all for it!

That's the first feeling I got and shes been doing it since she was 4 ? She just happened to want to go to ?space camp" at age 4 ? Maybe she is a reincarnation of the Christine Macaulif that died back in 89 in the aweful explosion. Maybe she is a jump room kid. Maybe she is just more advanced than most kids and has better parents than mine that took her to "space camp" lol.

Never though I would be jealous of a 13 year old. Good luck in training and I still wish I was going
