This Week at NASA…
LEAKY SPACEWALK - JSC
A spacewalk on July 16 that was supposed to be about a six-and-a-half hour affair for Chris Cassidy and Luca Parmitano ended – just an hour-32 minutes in, after Luca’s helmet began to fill with water.
“Hey Luca, can you clarify? Is it increasing or not increasing?”
“It’s hard to tell, but if feels like a lot of water.”
Parmitano’s OK and a re-do of the spacewalk, to prep the ISS for a new Russian module, is being evaluated.
