Oldest female astronaut breaks another space record

Another record has been set in space – the most spacewalks carried out by a female astronaut.

NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, who is also the oldest and most experienced space woman, did her eighth spacewalk at the International Space Station.

The spacewalks are needed for upgrading work and getting things ready for the docking of so-called space taxis in the future.
