First black woman to live on space station arrives in SpaceX style



Jessica Watkins arrives in space.

Jessica Watkins has become the first black woman to live and work at the International Space Station

Watkins was on SpaceX’s Crew-4 mission, which successfully launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre on a 17 hour journey.

She will spend the next six months on board, alongside her NASA crew mates, where they will conduct experiments relating to microgravity.

In addition, she will assist in carrying out the more than 200 science experiments, while serving as a mission specialist on the expedition.

The crew orbited around Earth before docking at 7:37pm EDT, and 420 kilometres above the Pacific Ocean.

“The Crew-4 astronauts will spend several months aboard the space station conducting new scientific research in areas such as materials science, health technologies, and plant science to prepare for human exploration beyond low-Earth orbit and to benefit life on Earth.”


Four other black women have travelled to space, but Watkins is the first to work at the International Space Station for an extended period of time.

“I’m definitely honoured to be a small part of that legacy, but ultimately be an equal member of the crew,” she says.

Following this historic mission, Watkins could be heading to the moon. She is currently part of the Artemis team, which NASA is reinstating for the first time since 1972.

Does American media have TikTok bias?



While the fate of TikTok remains uncertain in the U.S.—there is no shortage of possibilities.

Several investors are hoping to benefit from a new federal law that requires TikTok’s China-based parent company to sell the popular platform or face a ban.

This comes after ByteDance and TikTok filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government to block the law from going into effect.

Meanwhile, eight TikTok creators filed their own challenge, arguing the law violates their First Amendment rights to free speech.

But as the saga continues many media outlets are defending the platform.
