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.
