On March 29, for the first time in history, NASA will send an all-female spacewalk aboard the International Space Station.
According to a news source, “NASA astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch will be doing the spacewalk, with ground support from Canadian Space Agency flight controller Kristen Facciol, at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX.” More girl power is on this mission with females as the Lead Flight Director, Mary Lawrence, and Jackie Kagey as the lead EVA (spacewalk) flight controller.
The spacewalk will run for approximately seven hours. During that time, the astronauts typically test new equipment and make repairs to the spacecraft.
This is a huge milestone for NASA, especially for women!
