NASA's US agency yesterday abolished the space trail scheduled for Friday, which was to be held for the first time by two female astronauts. Because there is not enough space space of the right size on board the International Space Station (ISS).
The American astronauts Christina Koch and Anne McClain were going into the story because this was the first time two girls performed this operation. Instead, after the decision, Koch will leave his colleague Nick Hague. So far only men or a man and a woman have left since the station began in 1998. So far there were 214 exits.
Anne McClain made a departure last week, with Nick Hague, and found that the top "average" torso size of the suit was better, according to NASA's statement. "As only a medium torso can be prepared by Friday, March 29, Koch will use it," said the space agency.
In fact the space set on board the ISS is a set of parts that combine to fit the bodies of astronauts, says Brandi Dean, spokesman for the Johnson Space Center in Houston, where the headquarters is t .
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.
