Nowadays, everyone can have a selfie, but not everyone can have a selfie in outer space, and that’s just what astronaut Jessica Meir did.
Physiologist and marine biologist. Meir was chosen for NASA’s astronaut training in 2013, and completed the process in July 2015. She is currently in space, and is expected to return to Earth in the spring of 2020.
Since space travel became a reality (with the apologies of the flat earthers), more than 200 astronauts have taken space walks so far. However, most of these walks have been done exclusively by men.
In order to “regain ground”, NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir, currently crew members of the International Space Station, conducted a spacewalk together for the first time on October 21, of which Meir has just published a spectacular selfie.
Jessica Meir and her spectacular selfie
On her Twitter account, Meir posted two photos she took with a camera inside a protective bag. In one of the photos, she used one of the solar panels to reflect her face and show the Earth in the background, while in the second photo, it is a close-up of her face with the visor raised.
Finally, in the following video you can appreciate the space walk carried out by the astronauts Meir and Koch.
