Space Station 20th – Women and the Space Station

Posted by in category: space

Happy #InternationalWomensDay! As of March 2020, 65 women have flown in space. Of these, 38 have worked aboard the International Space Station as long-duration crew members. Women have contributed to construction of station, served as shuttle pilots and commanders, commanded station expeditions and participated in numerous spacewalks including the recent series of all-woman excursions. Women currently hold the record for the single longest spaceflight by an American and the record for cumulative spaceflight time by an American. Their ongoing achievements will contribute to NASA successfully landing the first woman and the next man on the Moon as part of the Artemis program.
