NASA spacewalkers both want to be the first woman on the moon

NASA spacewalkers both want to be the first woman on the moon

US President Donald Trump was humiliated for a mistake while he contacted NASA astronauts Jessica Meir and Christina Koch at the International Space Station (ISS) to congratulate them for being the "first ever female spacewalkers", a media report said. The spacewalk runs effectively and accomplishes some get-ahead duties on the station.

Meir, making her first spacewalk, carefully made her way using handles.

Additional images captured by astronauts can be viewed on the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth website.

Alternatively, Ms Meir fact-checked the President and said that they were no longer the first female astronauts to fling in rental. In October of that same year, NASA astronaut Kathryn Sullivan became the first American female spacewalker from the Space Shuttle Challenger during the STS-41-G mission.

When asked on NASA TV whether Meir and Koch could pair up for future spacewalks, Meir said that remains a possibility with the slate on the schedule over the next two months.

"We are thrilled to be speaking live with two courageous American astronauts who are making history joining us during their spacewalk... But you are awesome people".

Koch and Meir talked about girls working in human spaceflight throughout a latest information convention.

"We're in conversation too with NASA, so we have European astronauts on the surface of the Moon - that is the European goal", explained Jan Worner, head of the ESA, in precisely the same press conference. It's hard work, and when spacewalks stretch on for hours and hours, you have to be in excellent physical condition to make it through.

For the proposed spacewalk in March, Koch was alleged to be paired with astronaut Anne McClain, who has since returned to Earth.

The globally well-known astronaut, one of the first two on the Moon in 1969, is an advocate of the commercial space companies, such as SpaceX and Blue Origin, being centrally involved in the Moon-Mars mission.
