Which NASA astronauts took part in the first all-woman spacewalk?
On Oct. 18, 2019, NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir took part in the first-ever all-woman spacewalk. The 7-hour, 17-minute spacewalk was conducted by the Expedition 61 astronauts to replace a failed battery charge-discharge unit (BCDU). The historic event marked the first spacewalk for Meir, the fourth for Koch, and the 221st made by space station crew members. The first woman to walk in space was Russian cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya in 1984. Later that same year, Kathryn Sullivan became the first American woman to walk in space.
