1st U.S. Woman To Walk In Space Dives To Deepest Point In The Ocean

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Sullivan recently became one of only eight people ever to visit Challenger Deep. This is the deepest point of the ocean, a crevice in the Marianas Trench. This comes 36 years after Sullivan became the first American woman to walk in space. That makes her the only human being to have done both. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
