NASA astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch were supposed to take part in the first all-female spacewalk on March 29. McClain learned during her first spacewalk that a medium-size hard upper torso essentially the shirt of the spacesuit fits her best. McClain and Koch were set to go out together on Friday to continue work on installing powerful lithium-ion batteries for one pair of the station's solar arrays.

NASA astronauts Nick Hague and Anne McClain conducted the first spacewalk in this series on March 22.

McClain and Koch will both be making history during this mission by being the 13th and 14th women to perform a spacewalk.

Two NASA astronauts successfully completed the first spacewalk of 2019 to perform maintenance tasks on board the International Space Station on Friday. Only one suit with a medium-sized torso is ready for use on the station, and station managers chose to have Koch use that suit.

The original announcement about the spacewalk was met with huge praise earlier this month, with aerospace engineer Kristen Facciol tweeting her excitement about being selected for console during the event. There is only one medium-sized hard upper torso now available, NASA said.

The NASA website shows the spacewalk will last about seven hours.

According to the agency, astronaut Nick Hague will participate in the spacewalk outside the International Space Station with Koch.

If you would like to watch what is now a not very historic spacewalk on Friday, it'll be streaming live from approximately 10.30pm AEDT, with the walk scheduled to begin after midnight HERE.

"In addition, no one training environment can fully simulate performing a spacewalk in microgravity, and an individual may find that their sizing preferences change in space", she added. Had the previous schedule held, a Koch-McClain spacewalk would have been the first in the history of spaceflight featuring only women.

No difference exists in a male's or female's suit, but female astronaut usually require a smaller size.
