ONE SMALL STEP FOR WOMEN, ONE EVEN SMALLER EQUIPMENT
In a very strange twist of... well, just random news, an all women first space walk by NASA was postponed because, and get this... a shortage of outerwear.
I don't even know what the hell is that about. But it was an a NASA planned all female spacewalk and it isn't happening because the agency doesn't have enough spacesuits to fit the astronauts. I'm not even sure how the fuck that makes any sort of sense and more than anything, for an agency that has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to come up with equipment like pens that write upside down, you would think that putting together the funds to get all the astronauts properly equipped for the damn mission.
This is ground control... and we just don't have any fucking clue how to properly dress our space people. It comes about because McClain found that the medium size upper torso shirt fit her best, but the agency said that only one such top can be made by the launch on Friday. So now the trip looks to be postponed until the 8th of April. Which just seems like an overall strange situation that has happened and a really odd reason for a space mission to just not happen.
And here we are with more proof that there is a glass ceiling. Specifically one that is around the whole space program. Go figure.
