A 13-year-old girl from Louisiana could be the first human to be on Mars.

Alyssa Carson, who is the first person to have attended all three of NASA’s world space camps, has been training to be an astronaut for nine years already and is determined to be the first person to land on Martian soil, the Independent reported.
She said that she wants to go to Mars because it’s a place no one has been and though she has thought about possibly being other things, being an astronaut was always first on her list.
Carson, who speaks Spanish, French and Chinese, and tweets about her trips to NASA events and space camps, and the talks that she gives to inspire other children to achieve their goals, insisted that she doesn’t want one obstacle in the way to stop me from going to Mars, as “failure is not an option”.
Even the space agency is taking her seriously, as Paul Foreman from NASA said that Carson is doing the right thing, the right training aCarson’s father Bret says he has discussed the mission with his daughter extensively, and talked about the possibility that even if she got to the planet, she may not return.

“We have the next 20 years planned out, we know what she’s doing, she’s looking at going on a mission to mars in 2033,” he said.
He added: “In 20 years I may not ever see her again, there are options out there where they go to mars and not come back, and we’ve had those discussions, and if that’s the only option she still wants to go.”
