Two Nasa astronauts are making the first ever all-female spacewalk.
Christina Koch and Jessica Meir left the International Space Station's Quest airlock on Friday to replace a failed power control unit.
They were expected to spend five and a half hours replacing the power regulator with a spare.
Ms Koch had already carried out four spacewalks but it was the first for MS Meir, who became the 15th woman to walk in space, Nasa said.

I still dont know if the spacewalk was successful or not, despite the EVA being reported on every newssite I've been to.

. NASA Astronauts Wrap Up Historic All-Woman Spacewalk

At 2:55 p.m. EDT, Expedition 61 Flight Engineers Christina Koch and Jessica Meir of NASA concluded their spacewalk, the first with only women. During the 7-hour, 17-minute spacewalk, the two NASA astronauts completed the replacement a failed power charging component, also known as a battery charge-discharge unit (BCDU). The BCDU regulates the charge to the batteries that collect and distribute solar power to the orbiting lab’s systems. Mission control activated the newly installed BCDU and reported it is operating properly.

The astronauts were also able to accomplish some get-ahead tasks including installation of a stanchion on the Columbus module for support of a new external ESA (European Space Agency) payload platform called Bartolomeo scheduled for launch to the station in 2020.
