NASA says First All-Female Spacewalk Now Later This Week Featured

The First such mission was cancelled because NASA had only one medium-sized suit at the time. After an infamous spacesuit flub earlier this year that resulted in accusations of sexism, NASA now plans to carry out the first all-female spacewalk this seek, it said Tuesday.

Astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir will venture outside the International Space Station either Thursday or Friday to replace a power controller unit that failed over the weekend.

The First such mission was supposed to take place in March but had to be cancelled because the space agency had only one medium sized suit at the time, with a male-female combination performing the required task at a later date.
