Women Add Power

You might recall that a few months ago, NASA was promoting the “first all-female spacewalk.” And it was then cancelled because they didn’t have enough spacesuits on the station in women’s sizes.

Well, they finally got their act together and Christina Koch and Jessica Meir are outside this morning replacing a bad power unit. At this point, they’re on schedule and have completed all their tasks. This is completely expected and should be a surprise to no-one.
