NASA has announced that it will land the first person of color on the Moon as part of its Artemis mission.
The agency previously said that the Artemis mission will put the first woman on the Moon by 2024.
In November 2020, NASA introduced 18 astronauts who will be taking part in the mission.
The group includes nine women and several people of color.
The announcement comes after President Joe Biden’s administration submitted a budget proposal for the fiscal year 2022.
The proposal includes $24.7 billion for NASA.
This $24.7 billion funding request demonstrates the Biden administration's commitment to NASA and its partners who have worked so hard this past year, Steve Jurczyk, Acting NASA Administrator.
