Astronauts who participated in first all-female spacewalk in history speak

Meir and Koch, both in their forties and recruited in 2013, seem to be natural candidates. "It symbolizes exploration by all that dare to dream and work hard to achieve that dream", Meir said after the seven-hour, 17- minute spacewalk to replace a power controller on the International Space Station.

What's more, the woman will be one of the 12 current female members of the astronaut corps, said Bridenstine. "This is the first time that there's been two women outside at the same time", she said.

You're living the dream. "Another dream would be to go to the moon. 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". 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.

Koch says knowing so many were so excited about two women spacewalking together "just added to the moment" during Friday's event. The first was in July 1984 by Soviet cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya during her second visit to the Salyut 7 space station.
