The crew of the International Space Station (ISS) is safe after a coolant leak was discovered on the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft attached to the station, NASA said in a statement.

“Tonight’s spacewalk with cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin is cancelled as mission controllers evaluate the impact of a coolant leak seen on the Soyuz MS-22 crew ship. The space station is in good condition and the Expedition 68 crew is safe,”

NASA SAID ON ITS TWITTER PAGE FOR UPDATES FROM THE ISS.

The Russian space agency Roskosmos confirmed that “the planned walk of Russian cosmonauts Sergei Prokopyev and Dmitry Petelin from the International Space Station (ISS) has been canceled for technical reasons”.

Astronauts were ordered to postpone their spacewalk for the second time in the past 30 days.

The spacewalk was originally planned for November 25, but was postponed to December 15 due to a failure of the cooling system pumps of one of the spacesuits.
