Doesn’t take much for the average researcher to know where this mysterious water is coming from. How about the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory water tank? Even if they did tell everyone that space is lie, do you think anyone who believe it? After all, they’re telling everyone in this story the truth.
In one of the most harrowing spacewalks in decades, an astronaut had to rush back into the International Space Station after a mysterious water leak inside his helmet robbed him of the ability to speak or hear at times and could have caused him to choke or even drown.
Here’s the explanation:
Between 1 and 1 1/2 litres of water leaked into his helmet and suit, NASA estimated.
The main culprit appeared to be iodine-laced water that is piped through the long underwear worn under a spacesuit for cooling. The system holds nearly 4 litres, or 1 gallon. Less likely was the 32-ounce (about 1 litre) drink bag that astronauts sip from during lengthy spacewalks; Parmitano reported the leaking water tasted odd.
