The crew of the International Space Station saw smoke in one of the station's Russian modules on Tuesday, but the problem was quickly resolved. NASA said that the crew saw smoke coming from a vent in the Zvezda module around 2:40 pm EDT (1840 GMT) on Tuesday. The six-person crew took steps to isolate the ventilation system in the Russian segment of the station and turned off a heater in a water reclamation unit in the module that was the source of the smoke. NASA officials said the crew was not in danger during the brief incident. The Russian space agency Roscosmos said Wednesday that the faulty heater would be replaced.
