NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine says that the agency’s Artemis program will build on Apollo 11’s incredible legacy by landing a new generation of U.S. astronauts, including the first woman, on the Moon.

The Artemis program will land American astronauts on the Moon by 2024 and establish a sustainable human presence on Earth’s natural satellite. Artemis will also make history by landing the first woman on the Moon.

Bridenstine told Fisher that the first woman on the Moon will come from NASA’s current astronaut corps, 12 of whom are women.

“It resets the history,” he told Fox News’ Kristin Fisher, during an interview Saturday. “On Apollo, we had test pilots and fighter pilots, but there were no women.”
