A successful repair mission made NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir the first to participate in a space shuttle for all women.
In more than a seven-hour mission outside the International Space Station, women have successfully completed the goal of repairing a broken power controller that complements its solar network.
The significant feat follows the setbacks in March, when the walk of all women was postponed due to an improperly fitted space suit.

The first American space squirrel to complete its own mission 35 years ago, Katie Sullivan, said she was delighted from today's cornerstone,
And a NASA spokesman said, "Our accomplishments inspire students all over the world, proving that hard work can take you to great heights and all students should be able to see themselves in those accomplished me. "
Koch and Meir replaced battery units called BCDUs after failing to provide increased ISS power.
The failure did not significantly affect the crew or its mission, but nevertheless had to be corrected.
According to NASA, BCDUs regulate the charge for batteries that draw energy from the station's solar collectors to provide power like the station's orbit at night.
Koch, who is also ready to complete the longest single flight by a woman as she stays in orbit until February 2020, says sexual stages such as the space path are particularly significant.

The couple left the International Space Station at 07:38 ET (12:38 BST)
"There are many who they get motivated by inspiring stories from people who look like them, and I think that's an important aspect of the story that needs to be told, "she told a NASA briefing in Houston this month.
"What we are doing now shows all the work in the decades before by all the women who worked to take us to where we are today," added Meir.
Koch, who has a collaborator Poured Four Space Paths before, she became the 14th woman to ever walk in space while today is Meir's first space path, the ISS has seen more than 200 space paths since 1998.
Viewers took to Twitter to share their enjoyment of the first space walk in history to be held
Others jokingly asked if women would be paid the same for the walk

The planned space path for all women was terminated in March, as astronaut Anne McClain needed a medium space suit but only had a large one.
Due to safety issues in adjusting, it does not participate and man occupies it, making today the revised date of the important mission.
"We should never accept a risk that can be mitigated instead," she told Twitter after the event. "Crew safety and mission accomplishment come first."
At the time, the cancellation provoked widespread criticism, including from former U.S. First Lady Hillary Clinton and the global activist march for science.

A space flight woman dates from July 1984, when the Russian astronaut Svetlana Savitskaya became the first.
Russian astronaut Alexei Leonov – who died just last week – made the first space shuttle in history in 1965, four years before the United States released the men on the moon for the first time.
While today's event is very on-going, NASA said it was not planned.
"This has to happen after all, and the increase of cosmonauts in space over the last year provides another window of opportunity," a spokesman said.
"Fifty percent of the astronauts' 2013 candidate class are women," she noted, "and of the 11 members of the 2017 astronaut candidate class still studying, five are women. "

Valentina Tereshkova (at 26 years old)
Valentina Tereshkova at 82 years old became a national heroine at 26 years old
A former textile worker completed her groundbreaking mission in 1963 on the East VI spacecraft.
Mrs. Tereshkova was an amateur parachutist when she was recruited into a cosmonaut program in Moscow.
She was trained with three other women as part of Krushev's project for the first woman in space to be from the Soviet Union.
But she was the only woman to complete the mission.
During her three-day mission, she toured Earth 48 times and set a new space time record, completing the most orbits in the shortest recorded time.  Her flight was a major propaganda coup for the Soviet Union.
She was later awarded a gold medal by the United Nations for her role as spokesman for the Soviet Union.
