Today’s spacewalk on ISS is complete with the successful installation of a replacement coolant pump.

The installation means that a third spacewalk to finish the job is no longer needed.

    Do we have the capability to bring back the broken unit and then return it to ISS following examination & repair? Although the unit is quite large, perhaps SpaceX’s Dragon could accommodate it.

    would take 20 minutes on the ground, space complicates things a little! Merry Christmas Robert, just purchased Genesis, looking forward to read it, thanks, Joe.

  • Thank you for the purchase. I hope you like it.
