Two NASA spacewalkers started fixing the International Space Station’s cooling system more quickly than expected on Saturday, with no sign of the helmet-flooding problem that led NASA to outfit astronauts with snorkels for the first time.
Astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Mike Hopkins were so far ahead of schedule that they completed one of the big tasks that was originally scheduled for a later spacewalk: stowing away a coolant pump module with a faulty valve to make room for its replacement. And they did it all in just five and a half hours, an hour less than originally planned.

  6. Five very short videos. I learned some things. Being in space is like having a constant head cold…

    With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.

    Huge thanks in the making of the video to the talented trio of Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran and Andrew Tidby, plus Evan Hadfield and all at the CSA.

    And I’m floating in a most peculiar way.

    Almost time to leave Station. Hard to express all of my emotions, but mostly gratitude. I came here on behalf of so many people - thank you.

Tom and Chris in the final stages of readying the suits and airlock for their spacewalk. A full day’s prep.

Yesterday (May 11), these two astronauts carried out a hastily arranged spacewalk today to replace what may have been the source of an ammonia leak in the cooling system of the International Space Station.  More details here.
