McClain was launched to the International Space Station in December for Expedition 58 and will continue on Expedition 59’s crew.

Koch will launch March 14 to be on expeditions 59 and 60 crew. Both astronauts were part of NASA’s 2013 astronaut class and these expeditions to space are their first.

There have been 213 spacewalks since 1998.

Valentina Tereshkova from the Soviet Union was the first woman in space in 1963. The first American woman in space was astronomer Sally Ride in the space shuttle challenger 1983.
