spaceSPACE – Water. We drink it, we bathe in it and we need it to survive. When it shows up unexpectedly, however, it can create serious problems.

That’s what NASA experienced first-hand at an International Space Station far, far away. The planned a spacewalk outside the ISS was cut short when NASA detected a water leak in one of the astronauts’ helmets. NASA called off the two ISS engineers’ expedition that would have allowed them to finish installing some cables and do a little routine maintenance.

The spacewalk has not been rescheduled.
