Liquid Spills On Soyuz Docked To Space Station – Space & Astronomy

A liquid leak, possibly a coolant, has been detected from a Soyuz capsule docked at the International Space Station. The discovery was made at 1:45 a.m. tonight shortly before Russian cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitry Petlin began a planned extravehicular activity. The causes and severity of the problem are not yet known. There is no danger to the crew, said Rob Navias, a NASA spokesperson via NasaTv, and in the next few hours they will try to resolve the problems with the Soyuz MS-22, which is the lifeboat and return to Earth for 3 of the 7 current crew members.
