To the naughty step, perhaps?

Are you saying she doesn't have a thing to wear?

I guess they'll have to reschedule "girls' night out"

It will be great when we don't have to report that it is an "All-Women Spacewalk".

Agreed. The problem remains that, at the moment, the occurrence is deemed newsworthy; one longs for the day when such things aren't.

That was my first thought also. Maybe NASA is trying to influence female legislators for funding. There doesn't seem to be any other reason I can think of that it is newsworthy letting the ladies go out unescorted. After all, it's not a tough neighborhood.

Oh I wouldn't get too excited, we still have to endure the 'first all black' space walk, the first 'all Hispanic' walk, the first 'all lgbt' etc etc...Wake me up when we get to 'all GMO humans'...

I would like to know what dork decided it should be announced, before they had even checked that the right equipment was available!

I now have the impression that the gals on the ISS don't have suits to wear in case of emergency either. I would have thought it would be standard to outfit the crew before departure. It's like ships without lifeboats... but for the women only. What are they thinking?

My guess would be that there is a space suit for both of them, but not one in which each of them would be comfortable working outside the station, i.e. there are suits available for emergencies, but at least one of them is the wrong size/type for doing detailed space walk work.

Yes you're right. I heard it on the news, one of them wears large or medium but medium is the better fit. So it's not a space emergency..
