So, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins began their historic mission launching from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Fox News correspondent Kristin Fisher is live there tonight. She also happens to be the daughter of two astronauts. Kristin, thank you very much for being here today. We've been watching your coverage throughout the day. And one of the things that I particularly wanted to have you on tonight to ask you about is this -- you know, a lot of pieces that have been coming in the newspapers and on the Internet, basically blaming NASA. Saying that it was never -- it was designed for men. Let's put this up on the board. It says, this is from the New York Times. Piece by Mary Kowal. "Everything in space carries the legacy of Apollo. It was designed by men, for men. It is important to examine the gender biases of the early space program. If we want to land the first woman on the moon, let's make sure that she has the tools designed with her in mind." Your thoughts on that. Well, Martha I think it's important to remember that this was not a NASA problem. This was a cultural problem. This was the 1960s and back then, women couldn't become fighter pilots. They couldn't become test pilots, and that was where NASA was pulling the bulk of its astronaut candidates from.
So, this was not a NASA problem. I think it's a little bit unfair to sort of frame it as that now. As for these spacesuits that we've heard so much about, remember the first all-female spacewalk that was supposed to take place earlier this year that was an issue that comes from money. If NASA wanted, NASA would love to have as many spacesuits and as many different sizes to fit every type of person, man, woman, the problem was they are dealing with about a handful of spacesuits that are 40 years old. Yeah. And if the American people has a problem with it, then Congress needs to give them more money to get new spacesuits. Yeah -- it need to put the money where their -- where their mouth is so to speak. Your mom was a space pioneer though. She was the first mom to go into space, right? First mom to go into space, the fourth American woman to go into space. And I was talking to her earlier today, and she was reminding me about the time when she first joined the NASA astronaut program back in 1978. One of the first things that she did was Sally Ride, was they went to a department store and they bought clothes. Baggy khaki pants, baggy polo shirts, because they wanted to be one of the guys. That was the mindset for that first class of female astronauts. Well, she is incredible and so is your family. Kristin, thank you so much. Great coverage there. We'll be watching throughout the weekend.
那么，尼尔·阿姆斯特朗、巴兹·奥尔德林和迈克尔·柯林斯展开了他们的史诗级任务，从位于佛罗里达州卡那维拉尔角的肯尼迪航天中心搭乘火箭飞往月球。福克斯新闻记者克里斯汀·费舍尔今晚在那里进行直播 。她的父母碰巧都是宇航员 。克里斯汀，非常感谢你今天可以与我们见面 。我们一整天都在看你的报道 。我今晚特别想问你的是--你知道的，报纸上和网上有许多篇言论都在指责NASA 。称它从未--它是专为男性打造的 。咱们把它打在板子上 。这是《纽约时报》上面的文章，作者是玛丽·科瓦尔 。“太空的一切都传承了阿波罗留下的传统 。这是男性打造的，也是为男性打造的 。重要的是，要审视早期太空计划的性别歧视问题 。如果我们想让首名女性登月，就要确保她的脑海中存在为她打造的工具 。”你对此的看法 。玛莎，我觉得十分重要的一点是，我们要记得，这不是NASA的问题 。这是文化问题 。这发生在上世纪60年代，在那时，女性不能成为战斗机飞行员 。他们不能当试飞员，而大部分NASA宇航员候选人正是从试飞员中选拔的 。
