Comment: Women on first mission (Score 1) 412

It is not unreasonable to suppose a woman will be sent on the first manned Martian mission. There will likely be 3 or 5 people. Odd to break tie votes. The team will include the best engineer we can find. Certainly the best doctor. Maybe a pilot/trained technician.

Why not a woman? You might call it a political move, but that's ok. An African American too, maybe? And if a woman goes, perhaps we should send her husband also, so that jealousy/ill-will doesn't surface amount the male crewmembers. Just interesting points to think about.
