Main Question or Discussion Point

Fantastic story! Is there video?

Although it's the 221st spacewalk performed in support of space station assembly, it's the first to be conducted entirely by women, NASA astronauts Jessica Meir (at left above) and Christina Koch (at right above). It’s the first spacewalk for Meir; she’ll become the 15th woman overall and 14th U.S. woman to spacewalk.

Meir is also the first Swedish woman in space (she has dual citizenship).

Bravo!
I just keep wondering why, when I see these pictures, that style of space hair hasn't taken off down here on the surface in the fashion world.
Support our astronauts!
