Battery power problem cuts short Russian spacewalk, Nasa says

Still Waters

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

A Russian cosmonaut had to urgently abandon his spacewalk "due to a battery power issue" on his spacesuit, the US space agency Nasa says.

It says Oleg Artemyev was ordered back by Russian controllers on the ground to the airlock of the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday.

Nasa says Mr Artemyev, 51, was "never in any danger".

But he could have lost the ability to communicate with fellow spacewalker Denis Matveev, 39, and the controllers.
