Christina Koch and Andrew Morgan are going to remove a pair of old batteries and set up a new one delivered just a week ago.
In March, NASA announced plans to conduct its first ever all-women spacewalk with astronauts Christina Koch and Anne McClain.
The pair will conduct the first all-female spacewalk since Soviet cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya became the first woman to walk in space in 1984. The spacewalk took place on Sunday, October 6, and was broadcast live over the internet.
Now, it looks like astronaut and North Carolina State graduate Christina Koch will make history after all.
McClain, whose domestic dispute sparked what is believed to be the first criminal case in space, returned to Earth in June after orbiting the planet more than 3,000 times in 204 days.

The new batteries are so powerful that only one is needed to replace two of the nickel-hydrogen batteries the ISS originally had, according to the New York Times. "In the past, women haven't always been at the table, and it's wonderful to be contributing to the human space flight program at a time when all contributions are being accepted, when everyone has a role, and that can lead in turn to an increased chance for success".
Koch and Meir were part of the 2013 astronaut class.

Mrs Koch and Mr Morgan will venture out into the vacuum of space once more this week to continue to battery replacement. She has the accusations and remains an active astronaut. It will be the fourth of five spcaewalks to upgrade batteries on the station.
Koch is two-thirds of the way through a more than 300-day mission.
"It's an honour to follow in Peggy's footsteps", Koch said.
"I'm sure that they'll sit back and reflect on it, as we all will".
Koch is scheduled to remain in orbit until February.
Koch and Meir were asked in an interview from space on Friday about whether they mind having their accomplishments qualified by their gender, i.e. the first all-female spacewalk and longest spaceflight by a woman. They're halfway accomplished. The previous batteries are ten years old; the new ones are anticipated to last until the end of the space station's life. Only one is two women.
