All-Female Spacewalk Canceled Due to Lack of Spacesuits

All-Female Spacewalk Canceled Due to Lack of Spacesuits Nasa's historic all-female spacewalk has been scrapped.

The reason?

They didn't have a second suit available.

Astronauts Christina Koch and Anne McClain were scheduled to install batteries on the International Space Station.

They both need medium-sized spacesuits, but only one is available.

Koch is now scheduled to complete the mission with with male colleague Nick Hague.

McClain will perform her next spacewalk with another male astronaut, David Saint-Jacques.

But sizing requirements can change once astronauts are in space.
