On March 29, history will be made as the first all-female spacewalk takes place. NASA astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch will conduct a spacewalk as part of the Expedition 59 crew at the International Space Station. Canadian Space Agency flight controller Kristen Facciol will serve as console at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. McClain and Koch were selected to be NASA astronauts in 2013. The spacewalk will be McClain’s first time outside the International Space Station, where she currently resides, and Koch’s first spaceflight. Almost 35 years earlier, in 1984, cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya became the first woman to walk in space. Since 1998, there have been 213 spacewalks at the space station. Spacewalks allow astronauts to work on the outside of their spacecraft while in space, conduct experiments, and test out any new equipment.
