Russian space debris forces space station to evade, delays spacewalk

NASA last-minute postponed a planned spacewalk to go beyond the International Space Station on Wednesday after a large chunk of Russian space debris came dangerously close to the space outpost.

NASA astronauts Frank Rubio and Josh Cassada got ready to step out of NASA’s US-built Quest airlock International Space Station Wednesday (Dec. 21) to install new solar panels when their Mission Control team ordered them to halt work. Instead, the space station will perform an emergency maneuver to get away from a large chunk space debris which is on track to get dangerously close to the lab later in the day. The spacewalk was eventually moved to Thursday, December 22.
