Chinese astronauts have successfully performed the first-ever tandem spacewalk- a first for the nation’s space agency, working seven hours outside the newly installed Tiangong station in orbit around our planet. The spacewalk was conducted on Sunday when two astronauts Liu and Tang, left the space station.

This spacewalk was special for various reasons. One of the big ones being that this was the first time since 2008 that Chinese astronauts stepped out of their space stations.
