Harmful chemical leak on ISS space station

09/22/2006 12:00 PM

This report describes a problem on the ISS that happened the other day. Apparently potassium hydroxide was leaking from an oxygen vent. This was only the second time that an emergency was declared on the ISS, and the first time was a false alarm.

Here's a great picuture (from a very cool site) of the ISS (visit the page):

And here's a even cooler one of the shuttle and the ISS in front of the sun (visit the page):

DURING THE SAME FLIGHT THE CREW OF ISS ALSO HAD TO REPAIR AN OVERBOARD DISCHARGE VALVE AND IN JUNE A HYDROGEN VENT VALVE HAD TO BE REPAIRED. WITH THAT MANY PROBLEMS, I WOULD BE QUESTIONING THE ABILTY OF THE VALVES TO PERFORM AS DESIGNED.

Who was it who said, when asked about what he thinks about in space: "I just look around and think about how all this was built by the lowest bidder." or words to that effect.
