In March of 1996, Lucid accompanied the STS-76 crew to the Russian space station, Mir, where she stayed for a little over four months before returning to Earth with the STS-79 crew.

humanoidhistory:

April 7, 1983: Astronauts Story Musgrave and Don Peterson perform the first spacewalk of the space shuttle era. Tethered to the Challenger by safety slide wires, they were able to move along the cargo bay without floating off into space. The extra-vehicular activity (EVA) lasted 4 hours, 17 minutes.
