Spacesuits are Leaking Water and NASA is Holding off any Spacewalks Until They can Solve the Problem

   24 May 20:00:21  |  Universe Today

NASA’s spacesuits are getting old. The extra-vehicular mobility units – EMUs for short – were designed and built for spacewalks outside NASA’s space shuttles, which flew for the last time in 2011.
