NASA director Jim Brydenstein revealed the exciting plans to send humans to the Red Planet on the "Science Friday" radio show this week.
NASA has already unveiled plans to send humans to Mars by mid-2030, but the crew has so far been a mystery.
Speaking of the program, Brydenstein joked that "a woman is likely to be the first person to reach the Red Planet. It is interesting to note that Braidenstein added that a female element will be included in the next NASA moon mission.
The news comes shortly after NASA announced its first walk in women's space by March 29, when Anne McLean and Christina Koch will fly out of the International Space Station.
