Tim Peake spacewalk ends early

Space

Nasa has ended the spacewalk involving UK astronaut Tim Peake after his US colleague reported water in his helmet.

Tim Kopra reported a “small amount” of water, but the flight director took the precaution of ending the event early.

The agency is under a ruling to terminate a spacewalk under such circumstances after an incident in 2013, when a European astronaut developed a significant helmet leak.

The astronauts were outside the space station for four hours 43 minutes.
