NASA has scheduled the first all-female spacewalk for October 21 with astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir. The two will plug in new, upgraded batteries for the International Space Station’s solar power system. NASA had earlier scheduled an all-female spacewalk in March with Koch and astronaut Anne McClain, who was replaced by male colleague Nick Hague due to spacesuit unavailability.
