    NASA Announces First All-Female Spacewalk

    It’s one small step for women. The historic feat by U.S. astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch — with ground support from Canadian flight controller Kristen Facciol — is set for March 29. This week McClain and her fellow International Space Station astronauts became the first to enter a docked SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule while in orbit, a key step for the firm’s plans for manned missions.

    What’s the mission for the spacewalk? NASA hasn’t disclosed the specific purpose of the seven-hour outing, which it plans to broadcast, but it’ll likely involve repairs or scientific experiments.
