In her 50s, U.S. astronaut Peggy Whitson is reported to break another record.
She took off for the International Space station in November and was allegedly the oldest woman to ever be in space.
Now she will be the oldest woman to perform a spacewalk.
Whitman along with Shane Kimbrough performed a power maintenance spacewalk that lasted for over 6.5 hours. Watch the footage from the walk in the video below:
Earlier this week, she told the associated press that she’s adapting to weightless life quicker than her last trip in 2008.
She said, “I love being in space, I sleep like a baby. I mean, it is amazing the great sleep. Nothing hurts when you’re lying in bed. You can sleep the whole night through. It’s great.”
Next month, she’ll celebrate her 57th birthday while in orbit.
