  • A pair of astronauts are preparing to make history this week by conducting the first space walk with an all-woman team.
  • Assuming all goes to plan, NASA crew members Christina Koch and Jessica Meir will leave the interior of the International Space Station on Friday morning at 7:50 AM ET to replace faulty equipment on the craft’s exterior.
  • The faulty unit was turned off while Koch and NASA astronaut Andrew Morgan installed new lithium-ion batteries during an EVA on October 11, as part of a series of spacewalks focused on updating the station’s batteries.
