More water in the helmuts

Be the 1st to vote.

As I look up at the sky looking for Santa, I was reminded of this story earlier in the week.


Heard the part of another water leak from the ISS space simulator swimming pool that all the fakery is filmed in, with a helmut filling up with water. Second time this year! They better get a better scuba-diving equipment supplier.

NASA was quick to stress that the latest problem was unrelated to the spacesuit water leak that befell European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Luca Parmitano and NASA’s Chris Cassidy, during a previous July spacewalk. When the pair were attempting to replace some of the external hardware of the ISS, Parmitano’s helmet began to steadily fill with water – a fault originally thought to have been caused by a leak through a hole in the astronaut’s ventilation system. It later transpired, according to NASA engineers, that the problem resulted from a contaminated device inside the suit.
