China’s Shenzhou-13 crew is conducting a spacewalk for the first time since they entered the space station core module Tianhe on October 16, according to the China Manned Space Engineering Office (CMSEO).

Taikonaut Zhai Zhigang and his female colleague Wang Yaping have stepped outside the cabin in the country’s self-developed “Feitian” extravehicular spacesuits, while Ye Guangfu is staying inside the core module to aid their operations. The spacewalk will last for about six hours.

Wang has become the first female taikonaut to conduct extravehicular activities.
