  • The women that dared to dream

NASA astronaut Christina Koch went on a historic spacewalk along with Jessica Meir on October 18. US President Donald Trump congratulated them in a video call. Two astronauts will stride its surface, the first time humanity has done so since 1972, and at least one of them will be a woman, the space agency's chief Jim Bridenstine has promised.

You're living the dream. The first was in July 1984 by Soviet cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya during her second visit to the Salyut 7 space station. 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. So what's next? The moon sure looks nice.

International Space Station resident Jessica Meir said Monday that when she floated outside last week, she wasn't thinking about whether she was going out with a man or woman because everyone is held to the same standard. "That's always the image I had from the very first drawing I did when I said I wanted to be an astronaut in the first grade". That's a timeline that is very dependent on both funding and the pace of development of the rocket system created to send astronauts to our lunar neighbor. Koch, who led Friday's spacewalk as a veteran spacewalker, is also one of the 12 women who could be chosen as the first woman to walk on the moon.

"I definitely do not necessarily know the selection process, but I do know that every single person in our office is extremely qualified and whoever does that mission will be the right person for the job and will carry the hopes and dreams of everyone to explore", added Koch.
