WORLD'S FIRST WOMAN TO MAKE
TWO SPACEFLIGHTS

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the world's first woman to make two spaceflights?

Svetlana Savitskaya was a woman who knew her space talk. Not only was she the first woman to make two flights into space but she was also the first woman to perform an eva, which is a spacewalk. The shuttle used for her spacewalk mission was the Salyut 7 and she performed the spacewalk on July 25, 1984. Savitskaya was outside of her space shuttle for just over three hours and thirty minutes. This was the same mission that gave her the extra credit of being the second woman in space.

When she returned after that mission, she was appointed commander of an all-female crew that would head back up in the same space shuttle in honor of International Women’s Day. However, this mission never took place. She was given the title of ‘Hero of the Soviet Union’ twice and there is an asteroid named 4118 Sveta, which is named after her.
