It had been almost one giant leap for womankind, but history-in-the-making was avoided because NASA canceled the first all-female spacewalk scheduled for Friday, March 29, owing to a scarcity of spacesuits in sizes which match the girl’s astronauts on board the International Space Station. NASA had to swap one of the women’s places to get a man astronaut because there were not enough distance suits available to match both girls. Astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch were supposed to take the trip together, but McClain who wants a smaller lawsuit has pulled out and was replaced with astronaut Nick Hague.
To be clear, Koch and McClain will ultimately both walk in space, simply not together. The two @NASA’Astronauts who’ll venture out The @ Space’Station for Friday’s spacewalk is Nick Hague & Christina Koch.

This has fuelled outrage throughout the world as girls claimed ready to have a suit for your male replacement pointed to systemic sexism, incompetence, and protracted discrimination against female astronauts at the maximal institution. Details of the spacewalk. NASA, however, has proffered a cautiously crafted, scientific response to defend their right decision.
