American Gadget 14 years of its 17 preparing to fly to Mars. And she will fly

Alice Carson from Louisiana has been preparing to become an astronaut almost all her life and fly to Mars. She is now 17 years old, and she began training 14 years ago, when, at the age of three, her father brought her to space camp in Alabama. Today, she is one of the most famous students of NASA - still, she mastered robotics (having designed her own rocket by the age of 17), went through several simulated missions, received the code name Blueberry and was one of the first in the list of those who go to Red the planet in 2033.

After Alabama there were space camps in Canada and Turkish Izmir. In addition, Alice is the only person who has been trained in all three NASA space camps. It all began in 2004 with the children's TV show "Fantasy". After seeing the five friends go on a fictional journey to Mars, little Alice realized what she would do when she grew up. And she began to prepare.

“I thought then: this Red Planet is incredibly cool,” Alice recalled in a conversation with a Teen Vogue journalist.

Blueberries (or Gadget, as Russian space fans have nicknamed her for her cute resemblance to a cartoon character) are actively conducting instagram. In it, she regularly talks about her everyday life: training on the water and in zero gravity, courses in engineering and modeling of space technology, trips to TV shows and - from time to time - about a beloved family and a faithful dog. Alice’s last published post is dedicated to astronaut Bernard Harris, with whom the girl is, of course, familiar.

Gadget, as mentioned above, will fly to Mars and realize his dream no earlier than 2033. This date is listed in the NASA planning as the most acceptable - it is by 2033 that scientists intend to bring the technology to the required maximum and begin sending astronauts to Mars. Alice will be already 32 years old.
