Aboard the International Space Station, NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy discussed the ongoing efforts to solve a problem with crewmate Luca Parmitano's spacesuit during a downlink video July 30. Cassidy demonstrated the suit and discussed some of the troubleshooting activities to identify the problem that caused water intrusion in Parmitano's helmet during a spacewalk conducted by the two astronauts on July 16.
