.@Astro_Christina and @Astro_Jessica have extended their scheduled 5.5-hour spacewalk today and will accomplish some get-ahead tasks on the space station. #AskNASA | /live/
The spacewalkers are working outside in the vacuum of space during orbital day and night. @MrsStorms1st and her first grade class want to know, "Are the spacesuits hot or cold?" #AskNASA | /live/
Today's #AllWomanSpacewalk is a milestone worth noting & celebrating as we look forward to putting the first woman and the next man on the Moon by 2024 with our #Artemis program. Tune in to see @Astro_Christina & @Astro_Jessica work in the vacuum of space: https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1vOxwapRAMoGB
What's going on inside Mission Control during the #AllWomanSpacewalk? Flight controllers are monitoring various systems built into @Astro_Christina & @Astro_Jessica's spacesuits, like oxygen & water, while relaying tasks to the spacewalkers & controlling systems on the station.
