On October 21 Koch will participate in the first all-female spacewalk. "The first is Sunday; Koch will go out with Andrew Morgan".
"In the past, women haven't always been at the table", Koch said during a televised interview earlier this week.
The upcoming spacewalks will help replace solar array batteries and upgrade them to lithium-ion batteries, as well as refurbish the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, a scientific instrument "that explores the fundamental nature of the universe", according to NASA.
Also, the two astronauts accomplished some get-ahead tasks, including the removal of an additional nickel-hydrogen battery, originally scheduled for the next spacewalk on October 11.
At long last, Koch and Morgan moved one more of the new lithium-particle batteries from the bed to the support, where they introduced it in the vacant space cleared continuously nickel-hydrogen unit.
The new batteries are smaller, lighter and have an improved power capacity.

The first five scheduled spacewalks will upgrade the space station's power systems and the last five, planned for November and December, will fix the alpha magnetic spectrometer, which analyses cosmic ray events.
NASA space explorer Jessica Meir, working from inside the station, at that point utilized the Canadarm2 mechanical arm to reposition the bed so the main substitution battery was inside reach of the spacewalkers.
Koch is two-thirds of the way through a more than 300-day mission. "I have the battery", Morgan replied.
Koch and Morgan will share the spacewalking duties with Jessica Meir and Luca Parmitano.
