NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir have made history by completing the first all-women spacewalk.

They ventured outside the International Space Station (ISS) to replace a faulty battery charger.

The spacewalk, which was originally scheduled for 5-and-a-half hours, was completed in around seven hours so the astronauts could perform some additional jobs.

This is Koch's fifth spacewalk while it's the first for Meir.

The historic float came several months after another all-female spacewalk was cancelled because NASA did not have enough spacesuits in the right size.
