Chandigarh, October 10

Kurukshetra girl Jasleen Josan who became an Internet sensation after news reports about her being selected for Nasa’s Mars Mission in 2030 has on Facebook clarified that it isn’t the case.

Union Minister Harsimrat Badal in a tweet on September 24 had congratulated Josan for becoming the first Indian Sikh woman to be selected by Nasa to go to Mars.

Many people on social media congratulated Josan. The list included Delhi MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa and RPG Enterprises Harsh Goenka, who posted a congratulatory tweet on October 8. 

In a Facebook post on October 2, Josan wrote, “I would like to help media to clarify this misunderstanding that has been showcased about me. I am still an Aspiring Astronaut; undergoing training yet to be called officially as Astronaut (sic).”

She further said that Mars 2030 was a long way, almost 13 years, and no one could assure who would be going to Mars by then.

“Yes, I am working on few of the Mars-related projects and I will be continuing my research in the same area as I want to be the first Indian Female Astronaut to go to Mars to perform my research there to colonise Mars for the future of human life, but it has nothing to do with selection procedure of Astronauts or my selection by NASA for Mars 2030 (sic),” she wrote.
