NASA delays 1st all female spacewalk due to spacesuit availability

National

(WTNH) – NASA‘s first all female spacewalk has to be delayed because there aren’t enough spacesuits that fit.

Christina Koch was set to make history in the spacewalk with fellow astronaut Anne Mcclain but as you can seen in a photo posted by NASA, Koch doesn’t have a spacesuit on.

The problem is that the crew only has one medium size spacesuit available at the International Space Station that they both would need.
