After an infamous spacesuit flub earlier this year that resulted in accusations of sexism, NASA now plans to carry out the first all-female spacewalk this week, it said on October 15, 2019. Koch and Meir will venture outside the International Space Station either October 17 or October 18 to replace a power controller unit that failed over the weekend. HO / NASA / AFP
