Cooling pump on space station shuts down, NASA says




NASA said Wednesday it was investigating a potentially serious problem with a malfunctioning cooling pump on the International Space Station, but there was no immediate danger to the six crewmen on board.

"Earlier Wednesday, the pump module on one of the space station’s two external cooling loops automatically shut down when it reached pre-set temperature levels,” a NASA statement said. "The flight control teams worked to get the cooling loop back up and running, and they suspect a flow control valve actually inside the pump itself might not be functioning correctly.”

The statement said the crew was not at risk but some non-critical equipment aboard the massive orbital outpost was powered down.

There is probably a shortage of girdles on the Space Station.

Better call SpaceX for a parts run. I hope they have a grocery list, because this is going to be a spendy parts run.

We should have some manufacturing capability up there.

Well oddly enough.... its not that simple. Overheating is a big issue when it comes to spacecraft.

I doubt if those idiots at NASA thought about even installing windows that roll down.

LOL.

Burt Rotan will hand deliver it using his recycled car tire rocket engine.


Dude is impressive for sure.
