Second straight ISS spacewalk scrubbed
Posted: Sat, Jun 29, 2024, 1:09 PM ET (1709 GMT)
A second consecutive spacewalk was scrubbed at the International Space Station Monday. Astronauts Tracy Dyson and Mike Barratt had suited up and were just opening the airlock door when Dyson reported a water leak when she disconnected an umbilical for her suit as planned. The water turned to ice and froze on her helmet. The leak stopped when she reconnected the umbilical, but station controllers called off the spacewalk to investigate the leak. A June 13 spacewalk was called off when another astronaut reported discomfort issues with his suit. It's not clear what effect this will have on another spacewalk scheduled for July 2, or on other station activities like the departure of the CST-100 Starliner spacecraft, which had been delayed until after that July 2 spacewalk.
