NASA had to cancel the first all-female spacewalk in history because it didn't have spacesuits in the right size

The first all-female spacewalk in history will no longer take place due to a lack of fitting spacesuits.

NASA said in a statement on Monday that astronaut Anne McClain had been replaced for Friday's repair mission with Christina Hammock Koch by male astronaut Nick Hague.

There's only one upper torso piece that fits Koch or Anne, the agency said, so Koch will use it.
