Subject: Britain's Tim Peake Begins Spacewalk

Written By: Philip Eno on 01/15/16 at 8:10 am

Major Peake has stepped into space as part of a six-and-a-half-hour mission to repair a broken power unit.

Tim Peake said it was a "privilege" when he became the first Briton to walk in space after venturing outside the International Space Station (ISS) to fix a broken power unit.

The spacewalk, which began just after 12.55pm GMT, will last almost six-and-a-half hours.

Come to think of it, where is the ISS right now?

Nasa has ended the spacewalk involving UK astronaut Tim Peake after his US colleague reported water in his helmet. Tim Kopra reported a "small amount" of water, but the flight director took the precaution of ending the event early. The agency is under a ruling to terminate a spacewalk under such circumstances after an incident in 2013, when a European astronaut developed a significant helmet leak. The astronauts had been outside the space station for four hours.
