Spacewalk Delayed About an Hour

While spacewalkers prepared for today’s excursion, a valve on Robert Satcher’s spacesuit drink bag became detached. The bag is contained in the spacesuit and allows spacewalkers to sip water throughout their activity. The valve will be reinserted. If it does not seal tightly, then the entire drink bag will replaced.

This activity is expected to delay the start of today’s spacewalk by about an hour to 8:18 a.m. EST.
