The first one they are on blows up, they fall back to earth rapidly and uncontrollably and then, then they decide to go BACK UP!!!!
Stand back fellas, this astronauts testicles will crush you when they hit you.... Huge testicles of steel!!!!
It was second time lucky for NASA astronaut Nick Hague as he and fellow crew members Aleksey Ovchinin and Christina Koch arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) this morning. Depending on where you reckon space actually starts, it was Hague's second or first trip into the void. His first crack at reaching the …
I'm a bit sad that in 2019 it is seen legitimate to have to note that the spacewalk will be done by 'all women'.
Why does the sex of the spacewalk team matter? Maybe it's a vain attempt to show how far we've got - 2 female astronauts in space at once!

The term is "Astronaut" or the Russian/Japanese/whatever equivalent, they've all got more guts and ability than most to do what they do and nothing else really matters.
*Technically I'm not sure whether that's biologically possible but hopefully you get my drift.
Interesting in a way. Although I'm really not impressed by things like this (first "identity" to XXX) it does sort of point out that working in space doesn't require "Male upper body strength" and it might be an interesting test to see if women are naturally BETTER at it.
When you compare things like depth perception, upper body strength, fine motor control, and the tendency (or absence therof) to take risks, men and women have different enough characteristics already.
According to THIS men have generally better depth perception, women have generally better night vision. And so on. Several things cited there.
But I suspect that overall, women will perform equally to men in space. Good thing.
Anyway I look forward to the day when it's no big deal that a man, or a woman, or someone of a particular race or religion, does something.
