First all-women spacewalk scheduled to take place in October

On October 21, 2019, a first female spacewalk has been scheduled it is reported by Nasa on their twitter page. Even though Russian first woman on space was Svetlana Savitskaya but still an all-woman spacewalk had to be there but now that glass ceiling has been broken  As the two American women Jessica Meir and Christina Koch are preparing for the first female spacewalk.

Originally the all-female walk was planned for March 2019 but then NASA reported that the walk is canceled because fitting spacesuits were not available for both the female astronauts at the space station.

Now that the spacesuits are available, the spacewalk is scheduled and Jessica and Christina are about to make history while going on an all-female spacewalk outside the international space station.

Christina said in a video clip that it is really frustrating that the parameter to measure accomplishments is gender, she further said that she thinks that this all-female spacewalk is something that should be celebrated by women because it is a significant revolution.  

She told NASA TV that “ she thinks it’s important because of the historical nature of what they’re doing, and that in past women haven’t always been at the table”.

She further added “Its wonderful to contribute to the human spaceflight program at a time when all contributions are being accepted when everyone has a role and that will turn into more chances of success. I think its an important part of the story to tell. ”

Jessica agreed by saying “ what we’re doing rig now shows all of the works that went in decades prior, al of the work to get us where we are today” she further told that “ it’s really nice to see that we’ve come this far”

According to NASA spacewalking is the most difficult task performed by astronauts because in this process they have to fix the space station’s external features and stay outside of the ISS for over 6 hours. That is why fitting spacesuits were necessary for the safety of astronauts
