The First All-Woman Spacewalk ➶

Congratulations to astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir and to NASA for this milestone in our journey to a better world for our species, where each person can fulfill their potential.

“As much as it’s worth celebrating the first spacewalk with an all-female team, I think many of us are looking forward to it just being normal,” veteran astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson said on NASA’s live coverage of the spacewalk.

“I think if it signifies anything,” she added, “it is to honor the women who came before us, who were skilled and qualified — and didn’t get the same opportunities we get today because it is so normal.”
