Peggy Whitson, la mujer con mas tiempo en el espacio

 

Peggy Whitson, regreso a la Tierra el pasado domingo al terminar su misión de 288 días en el espacio, con lo que la estadounidense marco un record, de mas tiempo acumulado fuera del planeta.

 

 

La astronauta de la NASA de 57 años de edad, fue la primer mujer en comandar la Estación Espacial Internacional y además es la astronauta mujer con mas caminatas espaciales, entro otras marcas.

Whitson completo una misión en la Estación Espacial, la cual comenzó en noviembre de 2016, en la que recorrió 196,7 millones de kilómetros y dio 4.623 orbitas entorno a la Tierra.

NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, who set multiple U.S. space records during her mission aboard the International Space Station, along with crewmates Jack Fischer of NASA and Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin of Roscosmos, safely landed on Earth Saturday at 9:21 p.m. EDT (7:21 a.m. Kazakhstan time, Sept. 3), southeast of the remote town of Dzhezkazgan in Kazakhstan. While living and working aboard the world’s only orbiting laboratory, Whitson and Fischer contributed to hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science, welcomed several cargo spacecraft delivering tons of supplies and research experiments, and conducted a combined six spacewalks to perform maintenance and upgrades to the station.

Peggy Whitson a acumulado 665 días en el espacio en lo que va de su carrera.

 

Saturday, at 9:21 p.m. EDT, three humans landed safely home on Earth after months of living and working on the International Space Station (@iss). Record-breaking NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson was returning from a 288 day stay in space, bringing her cumulative time in space to 665 days, maintaining the record for U.S. astronauts. NASA astronaut Jack Fischer (@astro2fish) and Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin were returning from 136 days in space. The International Space Station is a unique microgravity laboratory where important research is conducted that not will not only help us travel deeper into the solar system, but also benefits life here on Earth.
