The International Space Station crew is preparing for a spacewalk to address the leak of ammonia from a cooling system, the commander said Friday.
NASA said the crew is preparing for a "possible" spacewalk and that a decision on whether to go ahead with it is likely to come late Friday.
Cmdr. Chris Hadfield of Canada announced the plan to venture outside the space station via his Twitter account.
"Good Morning, Earth! Big change in plans, spacewalk tomorrow, Chris Cassidy and Tom Marshburn are getting suits and airlock ready. Cool!" he posted Friday.
Wow! These videos look so fake at times. It is amazing the things that they do, I was reading a similar articles here about space http://www.rflive.dk
Space walking is fun. Just make sure they don't dump the porta potties while you are out there. Nothing worse than trying to scrap human excrement off your space suit.
How many light years is the farthest planet NASA or any other has explored, also how many miles to be exact in a light year
LOVE SCIENCE, HATE RELIGION!
what Alexander implied I'm shocked that any one can profit $8734 in a few weeks on the computer. have you seen this webpage .......... fox85. com
What a fool – take your Trolling rubbish elsewhere. You are not funny, no one likes you and no one will ever believe you. CNN – your comments facility for nearly every story on your vast website are full of idiots like this.
mr. black... You mean that NASA's "special plastic" (as they called it) protected the astros from vaporizing temperatures that are much hotter than the sun's surface? And that a parachute 'braked' their capsules from hypersonic to a mere 150 knots? If so, then indeed, enjoy the 'spaceflight' show....
A fake ISS spacewalk – what a clown, you must have either a warped sense of humor or be retarded – this is not Star Trek!! The ISS is REAL. There are six Astronauts living there right now. They have a problem that they will fix. Go look up a website called Heavens Above.com and find you city. It will tell you when the station and many other spacecraft will be flying over YOUR city. If you had a powerful enough telescope and tracking mechanism you could see the size and shape of the station F.O.R. Y.O.U.R.S.E.L.F.
The ISS is an orbital satellite remote controlled from the ground – like all other satellites, so of course you can see the thing mr. gullible. The 'astros' are stationed in Baikonur, where NASA and the Soviets have always performed their tricks. Obviously you don't have a clue about true physics and mechanics because if you did, then you would understand that a 8km/sec reentry from vac into the upper atmosphere causes rapid vaporization, i.e. a meteor. This is why Gagarin did not 'bail' from his comical cannonball at hypersonic and 'parachute' to safety. He, like his comrades in the US of A, were and still are dumped from cargo planes because a trip to space is indeed, a one-way ticket.....
Show us your science or physics degree, clown. Look up the principles of ablative heat shields and LEARN something. The truth of science and physics will be here long after you and I are gone.
LOL! If you're joking this is funny, if you're serious,this is hilarious. Thanks!
I hope that NASA's video editors will delete any stray bubbles that may 'fly' in front of the camera whilst doing their 'space tricks' in Baikonur to feed the masses....
Stop it, you're killing me! HA HA!
