Svetlana Savitskaya was the first woman in 1984 and a dozen other women have done spacewalks.


So why is this a big history in the making thing? Personally, I find it insulting, like a pity participation award or title they hand out like candy!

Ooh...not just one woman but TWO!


That's how I see it, two... Two women who are qualified are chosen to do the spacewalk, end of story. I like Bluntone, I just don't share the same enthusiasm.

Yeah, I imagine that melted Martian glacial water will do a number on the astronauts. Talking astronomical record breaking dumping! Cue: Southpark episode-record turd episode.

Hope they make good space sammiches up there and know where the fridge is!


I honestly hope they do a good job, but it's a routine spacewalk, so I'm not sure why we're making a huge deal out of it. A couple of competent women ought to be able to do it as well as any two other competent astronauts. Their sex doesn't mean anything particular really if they're doing their job.

Nice. Can't wait for the first transgender walk.


Are you sure we haven't already?


I would not recognize it unless they said they were beforehand but it's possible. The first sex in space, has that happened? Sure it has but unit I see the headline, "The First 220 Mile Club Members".



The Russians sent women into space from the 60s on so it would be believable that they could have played hide the pickle.

I wasn't really making a big deal about the event but I do think it needs mentioned.
Hell I thought amelia earhart was overrated but she was a groundbreaker.

She was a groundbreaker because she pushed the limits for everyone, men and women. These ladies are just doing routine astronaut stuff.

What did earhart do that hadn't already been done?

Yeah, while we're on the subjects of first in space I'd like to commemorate Neil Alden Armstrong.

I never really knew much about the first people on the moon since it was before my time. But the more I read and saw about Neil the more I admire the guy. What an absolute stand up humanbeing if there ever was one.

Salute

Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean in 1928, but was the first person to fly over both the Atlantic and Pacific.

Did she make it across the Pacific?
I know she died in the Pacific.

On January 11, 1935, Earhart became the first aviator to fly solo from Honolulu, Hawaii to Oakland, California. Although this transoceanic flight had been attempted by many others, notably by the unfortunate participants in the 1927 Dole Air Race that had reversed the route, her trailblazing flight had been mainly routine, with no mechanical breakdowns.

She was the first person to fly solo over both the Atlantic and Pacific. That is what encouraged her to fly around the world.

Hawaii to Oakland is considered transoceanic?

That's not even half way.

Successful in your eyes or not, she still was pushing limits of what all aviators had done to that point. These two ladies are only doing a routine spacewalk.

Well, their tool sack will soon be in orbit somewhere, so there's that


The day I find success building my light speed spacecraft, I'll probably hit that tool sack shortly after I hit light speed and get blown into a million pieces. HA!

Honestly that has more to do with the airplane than the pilot.
But seriously, doesn't transoceanic mean across the ocean?
Not across part of the ocean?
Don't get me wrong, she did a lot of great things I just feel she gets to much credit.

I'm more partial to Calamity Jane to be honest... Any man besides Wild Bill crossed her in the Late-teen hundreds, that was his ass. There weren't many frontierswomen out there, if any.
