For the first time in history, an all-female crew will conduct a spacewalk at the International Space Station, NASA confirmed to CNN.

As part of Expedition 59, NASA astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch will carry out the spacewalk on March 29. They'll be supported on the ground by Canadian Space Agency flight controller Kristen Facciol, who will be on the console at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The NASA website shows the spacewalk will last about seven hours.

Your post has me wondering how much Big Brands would pay to have their product advertised on NASA spacesuits and spacecraft.  (Times are hard!)

I doubt the Big Brands advertising will reach their targeted demographic on an occasion such as this, I dunno what kind of campaign will work to tell the truth, cosmetics , perfumery, fashion lines wont be in line with any space walks. If anything I guess we'd have to have the astronauts unveiling some poster or placard and that is just so distasteful I doubt any Big Brand would dare suggest it, I guesswe'll have to be satisfied with TV spots commercial breaks during the Live Feed

Update!  Walk cancelled!  Nothing to wear.

"The US space agency NASA cited lack of available spacesuit sizes that would fit the women for the walk at the International Space Station."
