Live feed of first all-women spacewalk

Here’s a live feed of the two astronauts working outside the ISS. As the YouTube video notes:

On Friday, Oct. 18 starting at about 7:50 a.m. EDT, NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir will venture outside the International Space Station for a spacewalk. The duo will exit the station’s Quest airlock in their U.S. spacesuits to replace a power controller that failed over the weekend.

One big step for womankind!

    It looks a lot more like work than a walk. Bring your screw guns in space.

    There doesn’t seem to be much walking, otherwise totally absorbing.

    I for one could never perform such a task and either way, I have no ambition to ever fly into space. Is there anyone as brave as an astronaut? To me, the answer is ‘no’.

    Spacewalks look like tons of fun. If I went out through the airlock, I’d be like a little kid playing in the dirt. I’d never return.

    Ok since no one has said it, I guess it’s on me….it’s the first unmanned space walk!

    Heeheeheee. I crack me up.
