First all female spacewalk by NASA astronauts
Early Friday morning, NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir ventured outside the space station to install new batteries in order to first replace a faulty battery charge/discharge unit (BCDU), making it the first time a spacewalk is conducted by an all-female crew.
This will be Koch’s fourth spacewalk and Meir’s first.
NASA, meanwhile, is asking schoolteachers to share photos of their students celebrating “HERstory in the making.” The pictures might end up on the historic spacewalk broadcast.
