BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir are set to make history on the first ever all-female spacewalk.
Koch and Meir will exit the International Space Station at 7:50 a.m. in hopes of repairing faulty equipment on the exterior.
This marks Koch's fourth spacewalk, and Meir's first. Once outside the station, Meir will be only the 15th woman to conduct a spacewalk, and the 14th from the United States.
Russian cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya was the first woman to ever conduct a spacewalk in July of 1984.
