NASA prepares for spacewalks, consisting only of women

From the day the first man into space has been more than half a century. It is believed that the first Soviet cosmonaut, who was in the vacuum of space, was Alexei Leonov — he did it on March 18, 1965. Today, the astronauts of the International space station from time to time too go into space for technical maintenance station, but one of the following attacks will be especially noteworthy to the scientific community. The fact that on March 29 outside the station will be a team of astronauts, consisting only of women.

The Team will consist of two people: Colonel Anne McClain and astronaut Christina Koch. It is remarkable that Christina has no experience of space flights, and will travel to the ISS only March 14, 2019. Anne, in turn, arrived at the station at the end of 2018, and performs the duties of a flight engineer. A week before the momentous event it will be released into outer space with astronaut Nick Hague.

The Women will have to spend in space about 7 hours and conduct an inspection and maintenance station. Ground support will also provide a female engineer Kristen Facciol.

I just learned that I will support the first ever women in open space! I can't contain my excitement!
