On their mission to replace batteries installed last summer, Canadian Space Agency flight controller Kristen Facciol will provide support from the ground.

NASA spokesperson told CNN:



“It was not orchestrated to be this way; these spacewalks were originally scheduled to take place in the fall. In addition to the two female spacewalkers, the Lead Flight Director is Mary Lawrence, and Jackie Kagey (also a woman), is the lead EVA (spacewalk) flight controller.”
