First ever all-female spacewalk to take place this month

2 astronauts are scheduled for the first all-female spacewalk in history

NASA astronauts Nick Hague and Christina Koch, and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin of Roscosmos, are set to launch aboard the Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft at 3:14 p.m. EDT (12:14 a.m. March 15 Kazakhstan time) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on a six-hour journey to the station. Almost 35 years later, NASA astronauts Annie McClain and Christina Koch are all set to create history once again by conducting the first ever all-female spacewalk that NASA has scheduled for March 29th, through Expedition 59. Shortly after Savitskaya's spacewalk, NASA astronaut Kathryn Dwyer Sullivan became the first American women to perform an extra-vehicular activity during Space Shuttle Challenger mission.

This week the place company revealed that the first ever all-female spacewalk will take place at the International Space Station (ISS) at the end of this month. They will be supported on the ground by flight team Mary Lawrence and Kristen Facciol. One of the mission's flight controllers took to Twitter to express her excitement.

It's about time we've had an all-female spacewalk.

But it's ridiculous to think that, in the almost 60-year history of sending humans to space, no two women have ever embarked on a spacewalk together-even coincidentally.

Hospital workers in Chicago reportedly fired for accessing Jussie Smollett's records
The nurse says she was called in at the end of her shift last Tuesday, fired on the spot and escorted out of the hospital. This news comes a nurse who was terminated explained to Chicago's CBS2 that the situation was merely a misunderstanding.

Koch and McClain are no strangers to each other.

"It was not orchestrated to be this way; these spacewalks were originally scheduled to take place in the fall", Schierholz continued.

Both McClain and Koch were members of NASA's 2013 astronaut class, half of which was comprised of women. To say an all-female spacewalking excursion is long overdue would be a gross understatement. The findings will advance scientific knowledge of space as well as physical and biological sciences.

The two astronauts making history have impressive resumes. "It is the second in a series of three planned spacewalks". Prior to joining NASA, McClain graduated from the U.S. Military Academy and was a test pilot.

It's been 55 years since Valentina Tereshkova became the world's first female cosmonaut to ever step foot in space.
