+ - Coolant Glitch Forces Partial Space Station Shutdown->

Submitted by astroengine
astroengine (1577233) writes "A coolant system glitch on the International Space Station has forced several of the orbital outpost’s modules offline as astronauts and ground control manage the problem. The crew are not in danger and ground control teams are currently working to see how best to troubleshoot. The issue, that occurred early on Wednesday, focuses on one of the space station’s two external ammonia cooling loops, along which the station’s electrical systems use to regulate their temperatures. The loop “automatically shut down when it reached pre-set temperature limits,” said NASA in a statement. It is thought that a flow control valve in the ammonia pump itself may have malfunctioned."
