We have to admit that people have moved to a new level of development thanks to the opportunity to make space flights, even if they are not as far as many would like. And with such films as Star Trek and Star Wars, as well as launches of the SpaceX rocket Ilona Mask, interest in the colonization of other planets has never been so great. But while some of us are only dreaming about space travel, one girl does everything in her power to make these dreams a reality for her.
Alyssa Carson is a 17-year-old girl from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which NASA is already preparing to become an astronaut. Her dream is to become the first person to be able to visit Mars, and she aims to be among those who will take part in the first mission to the Red Planet, to be held in 2033. It is worth noting that the girl has everything you need to get there.
Being the first person to complete the Passport NASA program, visiting all 14 NASA Visitor Centers,Alisza is also the youngest person to attend Advanced Possum Academy, which will officially give her the opportunity to fly into space. In addition to training for an astronaut, the girl also studies all the most common school subjects in four languages - English, Chinese, French and Spanish.
In addition to training and training, Carson is also a public speaker, attracting people's interest in space exploration. And with her work in this direction, she tries to encourage others to find their dreams. “Always follow your dream and don't let anyone take it away from you,” she says.
Despite her so young age, NASA is preparing a girl to become an astronaut.
She strives to become a member of the crew, which in 2033 will have to go to Mars.
This mission involves the creation of a human colony on Mars, which is supposed to one day be able to save our species.
Alisza began to think about flying to Mars since the age of 3, when she first watched the television show "Visionaries."
Since then, Carson has been working hard to one day reach his goals.
In 2008, Bert Carson, her father, enrolled a girl in the United States space camp.
Pretty quickly, she became the first person to visit all three NASA space camps.
And already 5 years later, Alisza was the first who managed to complete the Passport NASA program, visiting all 14 NASA Visitor Centers.
Carson is also the youngest person to be admitted to the Advanced Possum Academy.
This facility will make it a certified astronaut who will be allowed to go on a space flight.
In addition to the incredibly difficult workouts, she also studies ordinary school subjects, only doing this in 4 languages.
And as long as she cannot be a full-fledged astronaut, because she has not yet turned 18, Carson is already the youngest candidate for admission to the International Space University.
She finds time not only for school and training, but also for public speaking.
Alisza started with the Blueberry Foundation, named after her call sign, Blueberry.
This foundation aims to awaken in children the desire to search for their dreams and give opportunities to those who could hardly get them.
In addition, the fund attracts interest in space travel and its direct mission.
“Always follow your dream and don't let anyone take it away from you,” she says.
While this goal threatens her family life.
Carson knows perfectly well what sacrifices she will have to make, while she is ready to continue to strive for her goal.
