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.

NASA reshuffles spacewalk lineup, with all-female outing ruled out due to suit size

History’s first all-female spacewalk will have to wait for another time after NASA switched the lineup for two upcoming extravehicular outings at the International Space Station. NASA had planned to have astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch go out together on Friday to upgrade a set of batteries for the station’s solar arrays. But today the space agency said it was assigning Koch and crewmate Nick Hague to that spacewalk. McClain and Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques are tentatively s...

Months after aborted flight, U.S.-Russian crew makes smooth trip to space station

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin finally made it to the International Space Station today, five months after their first trip went awry. The two spacefliers were due to join the station’s crew last October, but as they were ascending from Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, one of their Soyuz rocket’s side boosters knocked into the main core, causing a rare abort and activation of the Soyuz capsule’s escape system. The capsule was thrown clear of the rocket...

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 coincidence.

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 ...

Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin and US astronaut Nick Hague said Thursday they were ready to head into space again next month after their last launch ended in failure. The two men previously took off in a Soyuz rocket for the International Space Station in October, but an accident minutes after blast-off sent them plunging back to Earth -- a very rare event for manned flights. At a pre-flight press conference outside Moscow, Ovchinin said both astronauts met with psychologists following the...
