“We do our best to anticipate the spacesuit sizes that each astronaut will need, based on the spacesuit size they wore in training on the ground, and in some cases astronauts train in multiple sizes,” she said in explaining the problem that hampered Friday’s planned spacewalk. However, individuals’ sizing needs may change when they are on orbit, in response to the changes living in microgravity can bring about in a body.”
