Astronauts vow remaining tool bag won’t drift away
By MIKE SCHNEIDER – 16 hours ago
HOUSTON (AP) — Astronauts vowed to double-check, even triple-check, to make sure a bag of tools is properly tied down during a spacewalk Thursday so it doesn’t float away like one did earlier this week.
“We’re definitely not going to do it again. You’re not going to see us lose another bag,” lead spacewalker Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper said in an interview from the international space station with The Associated Press.…Tethered to the lost briefcase-sized bag were a pair of grease guns used to lubricate a jammed joint that controls the space station’s rotating solar wing. The bag was one of the largest items ever lost by a spacewalking astronaut, and NASA guessed it cost about $100,000.
