First edit made to Wikipedia from outer space

This is the first edit to Wikipedia made from space. Astronaut Christina Hammock Koch made the edit while aboard the ISS. Her edit was to clarify the things she did in her last spacewalk, using the citation already provided.

NASA ExtraVehicular Activity (EVA) Flight Controller and Instructor – and MediaWikian – Daren Welsh worked with members of the community to help her create an account and make an edit inline with community expectations.

SPACE - outer space ;-)

I want to add that she used the mobile visual editor while making the first edit from space. Improving the mobile visual editor was the main non-maintenance project for the WMF’s Editing team last year.
