The Many Reasons Why Women May Be More Suited For Spaceflight

If in the near future an interplanetary space expedition is planned it would be for a very long duration and may involve populating a faraway world, a group of all-female astronauts would be the best choice for this project. Many sceptics would be raising their eyebrows as NASA, as well as other space research programs of other nations like Russia and China, have mostly sent men for intergalactic space expeditions for decades. In fact, the sad statistics show that in the last 58 years of manned space explorations only about 11% of them have been women. A fact we should all be ashamed off. “An all-female mission tends to be something that NASA has avoided in assignments because it seems like a stunt,” says Margaret Weitekamp, a curator at the National Air and Space Museum.”

1Women are better suited at Space program

For Nasa and similar space project nations like Russia sending women cosmonauts in space is nothing more than a gimmick and no real work can be achieved by them. But in reality, women are better suited at space programs and space travels then men. The logic is elementary if you are aiming for mars the contrast between the sending enough food for a large man versus a small woman could end up being substantial.

2It can be logically proven

This can be logically proven by 4 factors which we should analyse carefully. The first factor is that women are physically smaller inbuilt and structure. Secondly, it makes them suffer less than their male counterparts in some problematic physical effects of space flights.

3Women’s personalities are suited to space travel

Thirdly, women have personality traits which are innately suited for long space journeys and finally populating a new land requires women physically and healthy whereas the contribution of men can be…. substantially reduced thanks to modern fertilization techniques.

4It is more cost-effective to send women than men into space

Now we come to the details, we start off with weight advantage because lighter subjects in the ship and manoeuvring in the ship requires fuel which costs money. In fact, veteran NASA engineers themselves have been egging upon the fact in sending women or lighter individuals on spaceflights which would be advantageous from total-mission-weight-standpoint. So, sending six women in space for six months is much cheaper than sending six burly dudes for the same amount of time and workload.
