NASA Holds First All-Female Spacewalk in 54 Years of Spacewalking

NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir made history conducting the first all-female spacewalk in more than five decades of spacewalking! The two ventured outside of the International Space Station for a 6.5-hour mission to replace a failed power controller. Of the 227 people who have participated in spacewalks since the first one took place in 1965, only 14 have been women.
