NASA Spacewalk Delayed Due to Space Junk Debris

A spacewalk to fix a faulty antenna on the International Space Station set to take place Tuesday was delayed after NASA received a notification about the possibility of encountering space debris.

NASA astronauts Thomas Marshburn and Kayla Barron were scheduled to begin their repairs at 7:10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, but the agency said a debris notification came in Monday night, which meant NASA did not have enough time to assess the threat before the time of the spacewalk, which would have been Barron’s first.

“The evening of Monday, Nov. 29, NASA received a debris notification for the International Space Station,” the agency said in an updated advisory Tuesday. “Due to the lack of opportunity to properly assess the risk it could pose to the astronauts, teams have decided to delay the spacewalk until more information is available. The space station schedule and operations are able to easily accommodate the delay of the spacewalk.”
