NASA approves next ISS spacewalk despite water leak in suit

ISS EVA on 2015 February 25 (NASA) NASA managers said Friday they were proceeding with plans for the last in a series of three spacewalks outside the International Space Station on Sunday despite a water leak during the previous EVA on Wednesday. At the end of Wednesday's spacewalk, astronaut Terry Virts reported a small amount of water in his helmet. Officials said Friday that about 15 milliliters of water got into his helmet while the airlock he was in repressurized at the end of the spacewalk. Such condensation has been seen before, and the water posed no danger to Virts. NASA is thus proceeding with the third in a series of three spacewalks on Sunday to complete preparations for the installation of docking ports on the station later in the year that will be used by future commercial crew vehicles.
