It’s been 58 years since the first ever human trip to outer space performed by Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. While that was definitely a historical event, it was only the beginning of the space exploration era that is now reaching its peak. Around 500 people have been to space during the last few decades, and only 10% of them were women.
The Space industry has come a long way since then and now you can see much more women in NASA in general and on the International Space Station (ISS) in particular. It was only a matter of time when an all-female crew will gather up for a historical event – and so they did!
