NASA Control Terminates Spacewalk by Two-Ham Astronaut Team
NASA has prematurely terminated the extra-vehicular excursion (EVA) - or spacewalk - that Astronauts Time Peake, KG5BVI, and Tim Kopra, KE5UDN, had been undertaking since early this morning. The two had been carrying out maintenance work to replace a voltage regulator near the solar arrays that failed in November outside the International Space Station (ISS) when Kopra reported what NASA Control called "a small amount of water" inside his space helmet. NASA cut the spacewalk short at about 1700 UTC. The maintenance work already had been completed, and the pair was carrying out other tasks that required crew members to be outside the ISS, when NASA Control, invoking its conservative flight rules, called Peake and Kopra back inside.
