NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir (above) exit the International Space Station on October 18.

The world’s first female spacewalking team made history high above Earth. This is the first time in a half-century of spacewalking that a woman floated out without a male crewmate. Their job was to fix a broken part of the station’s solar power network.
