Abstract: If a countably compact space can be expressed as a union of less then many first countable subspaces, then MA implies that is sequentially compact. Also MA implies that every countably compact space of size is sequentially compact. However, there is a model of ZFC in which and there is a countably compact, separable space of size , which is not sequentially compact.
