Congrats to @NCStateSciences and @NCStateEngr alumna @Astro_Christina for being selected for a spaceflight to the International @Space_Station in 2019!

Look back at how her childhood dream became a reality: https://t.co/ITVNCnxewH #ThinkAndDo https://t.co/lfK29Lmwov

It'll be an awfully long flight if she's taking a space shuttle!

She will part of a spacewalk this week - https://www.npr.org/2019/03/26/706779637/nasa-scraps-first-all-female-spacewalk-for-want-of-a-medium-sized-spacesuit

Was supposed to be the first ever all-female spacewalk but NASA didn't have enough spacesuits to accommodate. The other astronaut went on a spacewalk last week so she's not necessarily missing out, but would have been a cool milestone.

Very cool! It seems someone on the management team really supports Christina. She was originally scheduled to participate in a record-setting spacewalk that got canceled due to equipment issues. I hope she enjoys the stay and gets to accomplish important work.

The spacewalk didn't get cancelled, just that it was going to be an all-female spacewalk (first ever). They didn't have enough spacesuits that fit them (both needed a medium sized suit), so the other female crewmember went on a spacewalk earlier in the week and Christina took the suit during the planned walk.

I knew that, but just stated it poorly. Thanks for the clarification on my mess.
