ISS Crew Preparing for an Emergency Spacewalk

For anyone interested in space and our space program, there is a little drama going on aboard the International Space Station. While the station’s astronauts are not in any danger, a coolant leak in one of the solar arrays has managers at NASA scrambling to reroute power to the other seven arrays and preparing for possible emergency spacewalk on Saturday. The leak is expected to force the shutdown of that solar array sometime this morning. The decision on doing a spacewalk will be made sometime late tonight. NASA TV has been covering these events on and off already, and if there is a spacewalk you will be able to watch it live. You can check in on their live stream here at GeekDad.
