Frosty vs. Leaky: Spacewalkers shuffle spare coolant pumps at space station

Astronaut forgets SD card for Go Pro OMEGALUL | Reality

NASA astronauts are taking a spacewalk to shuffle around a couple of space station pumps.

Two flight engineers of the USA space agency NASA completed the fifth spacewalk of this year out of the International Space Station on Wednesday.

Since they operate using highly toxic ammonia, the spacewalkers must take utmost care not to get any on their suits.

The two astronauts moved the Pump Flow Control Subassembly (PFCS) from a spare parts platform on the station's truss to the Dextre robotic arm.

"We need to keep the batteries cool just like in your cell phone". The flight engineers of expedition 55 Drew Feustel, as well as Ricky Arnold, will come out of the station from the Quest airlock at about 8:10 am EDT.

Mac Miller Arrested for DUI, Hit and Run
A law-enforcement source told the site, "He was the most polite and nice intoxicated person we've ever seen". They promptly arrested him, and took him to jail, where he had a bail set at $15K.

One pump got too cold because of a power shutdown 17 years ago and is called Frosty; flight controllers plan to test it in the coming days to see if it still works. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., said that cutting off funding in 2025, as the White House wants to do, "would be irresponsible at best and probably disastrous".

In Frosty's place, they plan to install "Leaky", which was the source of a large overboard ammonia leak about five years ago.

The main danger of the spacewalk involves the high-grade ammonia that runs through the cooling loops.

Feustel and Arnold went spacewalking at the end of March, shortly after arriving at the 250-mile-high lab.

This is the 210th spacewalk at the ISS since 1998.
