ISS spacewalk delayed
Posted: Sat, May 22, 2004, 8:57 AM ET (1257 GMT)
ISS illustration (NASA) A spacewalk to repair a faulty gyro on the International Space Station has been delayed nearly a week to resolve a problem with a spacesuit. The EVA by Gennady Padalka and Michael Fincke was scheduled for June 10, but a status report issued by NASA late Friday noted that the spacewalk was now scheduled for no earlier than June 16. To specific reason was given for the delay, but during a rehearsal earlier this week the cooling system in Padalka's US-built spacesuit was encountered that was severe enough to cancel the rest of the rehearsal. Padalka and Fincke drained the water in the cooling system and refilled it in an effort to resolve the problem. The EVA is planned to repair one of the gyroscopes on the US segment that provide attitude control for the station.
