NASA scraps all-female spacewalk for lack of well-fitting suits

NASA on Monday scrapped a planned historic spacewalk by two women astronauts, citing a lack of available spacesuits that would fit them at the International Space Station. Christina Koch will now perform tasks in space on Friday with fellow American Nick Hague. NASA explained the change in plans on account of the ability to make ’only one medium-size torso’ spacesuit ready by Friday.

Because our advancement in space needs to be highlighted by what is between someone's legs? Goes along with the ol Never A Strait Answer I guess....

Actually I'm a bit surprised they don't have proper fitted spacesuits for each astronaut.
