OUTER SPACE – The weather down here on Earth may be a little frightful…but up in space, it’s a lovely day!

A couple of NASA astronauts are outside the International Space Station trying to fix a cooling system that shut down last week. Without getting too technical, a pump with a bad valve has to be replaced.

The crew has a total of three spacewalks scheduled to get ‘er done with the next one happening on Monday and a third happening on Christmas Day. What a bummer. But, at least those guys will have a great view of Santa and his reindeer as they circle the globe Christmas Eve, and maybe the jolly ‘ol fat guy will make a special delivery up to them in space.
