Successful Mission for First All Female Space Walk

Christina Coch and Jessica Meir completed the first all-female space walk to replace a controller that distributes power to the international space station.  The job went off “without a hitch” and took 7 hours and 17 minutes. In addition to replacing the battery component, they completed other tasks.

“As much as it’s worth celebrating the first spacewalk with an all-female team, I think many of us are looking forward to it just being normal,” veteran astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson said on NASA’s live coverage of the spacewalk.

“I think if it signifies anything,” she added, “it is to honor the women who came before us, who were skilled and qualified — and didn’t get the same opportunities we get today because it is so normal.”

The above was excerpted from this report from NPR.

  1. YAY. First all female space walk, 7 hours and 17 minutes. Way to go, ladies!

  2. Rome has got the right idea…wonder what a difference we could make if America made recycling “worthwhile” to the average person!
