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.

NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir are now at the International Space Station (ISS) and are scheduled to spacewalk together on October 21, which will be the first time two women would do a spacewalk together.

The troublesome spacesuit part was a piece called the "hard upper torso", which NASA describes as a "vest made out of fiberglass like some cars and swimming pools".

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.

Astronauts Christina Koch and Andrew Morgan wrapped up their spacewalk at 2:40 p.m. She is already on the International Space Station since March 14, and is slated to stay there until February 2020.

Koch, who filled in as EV1 (or lead spacewalker) and wore the Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) spacesuit with red stripes currently has now logged an aggregate of 13 hours and 46 minutes on her two spacewalks.
