Equipment water leak shortens spacewalk by two US astronauts

IMAGE OF THE DAY: Expedition 51 Flight Engineer Jack Fischer Of NASA Prepares For ISS Spacewalk

Watch two NASA astronauts complete the 200th spacewalk outside the ISS

"Ginormous fondue pot, bubbling over with piping hot awesomesauce", said American astronaut Jack Fischer as he embarked on his first-ever spacewalk outside the International Space Station on Friday.

NASA astronauts are hitting a big milestone today: the 200th spacewalk at the International Space Station (ISS). She holds the record for the most spacewalks by a female USA astronaut, and today's outing will be her ninth.

Whitson and Fischer completed the first and most important spacewalk task faster than usual.

"Managers in mission control chose to shorten the spacewalk from the original six and a half hour plan, due to available battery power for the spacesuits", according to NASA.

The game is quite similar to For Honor , but the game mechanics make it very unique, as this gameplay trailer explains. The release date news was accompanied by a new combat trailer, giving a deep-dive into Absolver's combat system.

In light of that, it's pretty fantastic that there haven't been any astronaut or cosmonaut deaths or serious injuries during spacewalks since they began at the station in 1998. However, due to the delay at the beginning of the mission, some of the secondary tasks of the spacewalk might have to be canceled.

The spacewalk began at 9.08 a.m., about one hour after the planned start time, and ended at 1:21 p.m.

But as the astronauts were suited up and preparing to go into the de-pressurization airlock, they noticed a water leak at the connection point of Fischer's spacesuit and the station's cooling and power system "umbilical cord".

He and Commander Peggy Whitson were fit checking their spacesuits in advance of Friday's spacewalk.

It was discovered as the astronauts were seated in the airlock inside the space station, before they ventured into the vacuum of space.

The EVA started over the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii and lasted 23 minutes, ending over the Gulf of Mexico.

Astronauts sped through the landmark 200th spacewalk at the International Space Station, after a glitch in preparations left them looking at a shortened trip outside.

NASA succeeds in its historic spacewalk on Friday, although it all began with a micro-gravity curveball.
