Q3. In March 2019, NASA had to cancel the first all-female spacewalk on the International Space Station due to the unavailability of a suit in the correct size for astronaut Anne McClain. Hence, a new Moon suit, formally known as the Exploration Extravehicular Mobility Unit (xEMU) was unveiled for the 2024 mission. The new suit gives the wearer a customised fit irrespective of their body size. It is designed to give more flexibility to the astronauts, allowing them to bend over to pick up rocks, drive a rover, or walk normally without bunny-hopping along the Moon’s surface. It also protects them against radiation, moondust, extreme temperatures.

As the 2024 mission aims to put the first woman on the moon, it is aptly named after the twin sister of Greek god Apollo. Name her.
