New York. For the first time NASA is sending a team of 15 women for a spacewalk without a male partner. On October 21, this team will take a spacewalk in different stages. Earlier in March, NASA had planned to send women on the spacewalk, but it was postponed due to lack of proper size of the spacesuit. Now its plan has been made afresh.

According to NASA, Christina herself configured the second suit and began work on it after the spacewalk program was postponed in March due to the non-availability of spacesuits. So far, three suits have been prepared. After the creation of these suits, now three astronauts will be able to walk to the spacewalk.

Luca Permetano of the European Space Agency will also spacewalk alongside Christina. Christina and Jessica have trained together for the past 6 years, as they are both members of the same team.
