A news report today says that an accident in the U.S. portion of ISS caused a freon leak.
The report also said there was a leak of ammonia, and that he crew is not in danger from either leak.
The report is also very vague and sparse with information, and appears to come from the Russians, since it also says that the leaks suggest “systemic problems in the operation of the station’s U.S. segment.”
