NASA cancels all-female spacewalk because it didn’t have enough spacesuits ready in the right size

That sad trombone you hear is the sound of NASA’s attempt at a history-making spacewalk falling apart. On Friday, NASA was planning to conduct its first all-female spacewalk, but realized it doesn’t have enough spacesuits that are the right size for its female astronauts. After conducting the first spacewalk this week, astronaut Anne McClain noted that the large suit she was wearing did not allow her to move effectively.

NASA scraps all-women spacewalk for lack of well-fitting suits

The US space agency NASA scrapped Monday a planned historic spacewalk by two women astronauts, citing a lack of available spacesuits that would fit them at the International Space Station. Christina Koch will now perform tasks in space Friday with fellow American Nick Hague -- instead of Anne McClain as originally planned. Had Koch and McClain done their spacewalk together, it would have been the first ever by two women astronauts.

Watch the crew of 2018’s failed Soyuz launch blast off again live right here

When Astronaut Nick Hague and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin were last strapped into a Russian-made Soyuz spacecraft in late 2018, things didn't exactly go as planned. A last-second abort sent the pair careening back towards Earth, which is obviously not where they intended to end up. Today, they'll get a second chance.Both Hague and Ovchinin will once again be perched atop a Russian rocket as it speeds into space, and this time they'll be joined by Hague's colleague, fellow NASA astr...

After a narrow escape from a doomed rocket, an astronaut and cosmonaut will try again to launch into space today

Three people are scheduled to launch into space at 3:14 p.m. EDT on Thursday aboard a Russian rocket ship called Soyuz. Two of the crew members — NASA astronaut Nick Hague and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin — tried to launch on a Soyuz in October, but it failed in mid-flight. An emergency escape system saved Hague and Ovchinin from the doomed rocket. The two will again try to reach the International Space Station, this time with NASA astronaut Christina Koch, who's slated to participate in the firs...

The first all-female spacewalk in history will feature women astronauts, flight directors, and mission controllers. NASA says it's a scheduling accident.

The first all-female spacewalk is scheduled to occur on March 29 outside the International Space Station. Astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch will work together in spacesuits while female mission controllers on Earth provide support. NASA said the historic first "was not orchestrated to be this way" and is a result of scheduling changes and the changing makeup of its agency. The goal of the spacewalk is to upgrade the space station's power system with new batteries. NASA is about to ...
