The American agency NASA abolished the space path scheduled for two female spaces on Friday because there is not enough space space of the size adequate on board the International Space Station (ISS).
American astronauts Christina Koch a Anne McClain they were going to go into history because this is the first time that two women performed that operation t. Instead, after the decision, Koch will leave his colleague Nick Hague.
So far, only the men or a man and a woman have made exits since the station started in 1998. So far, they are registered 214 exit of space.
Anne McClain left last week with Nick Hague, and found that the "average" size of the top torso of the suit was better, according to NASA's statement.
"As only a medium torso can be prepared by Friday, March 29, it will be used by Koch," said the space agency.
In fact the space set on the ISS board is a set of parts that combine to fit the bodies of astronauts, t AFP Brandi Dean, spokesman for the Johnson Space Center in Houston, where the headquarters is located.
According to the officer, On board the Station there are two better combinations for each of the three sizes available: medium, large and very large.
But one of the "averages" is a spare part that needs 12 hours of work to prepare for an exit. Once in space, adjustments may be needed on sizes based on changes caused by ficrogravity, he added.
