Astronaut’s Spacesuit Malfunctions During Spacewalk

Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano–you can follow him on Twitter here–abandoned his spacewalk yesterday after his suit malfunctioned. Scary stuff!

Between a liter and a liter-and-a-half of water was inside Parmitano’s helmet before he returned to the space station. “We clearly have a problem at this point we don’t quite understand,” mission management team chairman Kenneth Todd said during a press conference. NASA is searching for answers as to what caused the leak.
