Anne McClain and Christina Koch, two NASA astronauts with Expedition 59, will operate the spacewalk - the name for when an astronaut gets out of a vehicle while in space - on March 29. NASA celebrates the accomplishments of the many highly qualified women who fill its ranks, and a couple of them are about to perform a truly history spacewalk. It is not yet clear what tasks McClain and Koch will be performing during their spacewalk, which is expected to last around seven hours, according to Frazier.
According to CNN, Nasa says spacewalks are essential for conducting work outside a spacecraft, testing new equipment and fixing satellites and spacecrafts that are already in space.
"As now scheduled, the March 29 spacewalk will be the first with only women", NASA spokeswoman Stephanie Schierholz told CNN in an emailed statement-the only mention of the all-female excursion.

NASA opened the space program to female applicants in 1978. And for the most part, Frazier notes, "spacewalks have been. conducted by male astronauts, with the help of some female crewmembers". She's due to take part in another spacewalk on March 22, alongside astronaut Nick Hague.
Koch is set to launch on March 14, as part of Expedition 59 and 60 that will launch from Russian Federation. This will be a true reality and a big achievement in the history of NASA to have a complete unmanned team to undertake their project.
