First All-Female Spacewalk Cancelled, NASA Says Not Enough Medium-Sized Spacesuits

According to a report by Mother Nature Network, on Monday, NASA announced that the highly anticipated first all-female spacewalk has been cancelled, claiming that the International Space Station is not equipped with enough spacesuits in the correct size.

NASA astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch had been scheduled to conduct the spacewalk together on March 29, however, mission managers decided to change the assignments.
