In an hour-long outdoor use in all two U.S. astronauts have sealed a leak in the cooling system of the International Space Station. Chris Cassidy and Tom Marshburn had replaced a control box, a pump, said the U.S. space agency NASA on Saturday.

“No leak, we bring Tom & Chris back in,” the Canadian ISS Commander Chris Hadfield tweeted enthusiastically. The Russian ISS flight director Vladimir Soloviev had classified the incident as “very serious damage”.

    astronauts were discovered, according to NASA before, “little white flakes” on the ISS, which was attributed to the escape of ammonia. The toxic gas is used for cooling an electric circuit to the human outpost in around 410 kilometers altitude.

    space agencies of the United States and Russia stressed, however, neither the station nor the six-member crew were in danger.
