April was not aware of NASA’s plans to send the first woman to the moon in 2024. Also, she was a little surprised that 1972 was the last time we sent people to the moon. She thought we would have gone more frequently once we figured out how. And while she thinks it will be a good accomplishment to go back, it is not something that she is likely to celebrate.
I met Sterling at downtown Houston. He had heard about NASA’s plans to land an astronaut on the moon in 2024. He thinks it will inspire some people especially younger people in elementary. But he thinks that it needs to benefit all people. We should not go for the sake of going. When asked about something the astronauts should do on the moon, he suggested playing volleyball.
