News that shouldn’t be news in the future

Unscheduled spacewalk likely on Monday. I look forward to the day when a maintenance spacewalk to jigger with something that is stuck isn’t news at all, because it’s become so routine on the multiple orbital stations we have up there that it just doesn’t warrant notice.

Late Wednesday, the Mobile Transporter rail car on the station’s truss was being moved by robotic flight controllers at Mission Control, Houston, to a different worksite near the center of the truss for payload operations when it stopped moving.

The cause of the stall is being evaluated, but experts believe it may be related to a stuck brake handle, said ISS Mission Integration and Operations Manager Kenny Todd.

So there you go.
