An equipment water leak has stalled a spacewalk by two USA astronauts at the International Space Station on Friday.
Expedition 51 Flight Engineer Jack Fischer of NASA floats inside the International Space Station while wearing his spacesuit. Live coverage of the milestone event will begin in the stream above at around 6.30AM ET, with the spacewalk itself scheduled to start 8AM and continue for six-and-a-half hours.
"Outstanding, Peggy", came the voice from Houston's Mission Control.
During preparations earlier in the morning, a small amount of water leaked from the connection point between an umbilical hose and Fischer's suit.
Friday's mission was Whitson's ninth spacewalk.
The astronauts will exit the station's Quest airlock to replace an avionics box that routes command and data information to external science experiments.
Other jobs in Friday's spacewalk plan before the umbilical leak included the setup of a new high-definition video camera and a pair of wireless antennas outside the research complex, plus inspections and repairs of insulation on the station's Japanese robotic arm.
'It has been exhibiting some thermal issues of late, so it is being replaced, ' explained Navias.

NASA's bulky white spacesuits are aging, and the same models have been in use for four decades.
The 1 spacewalk in support of construction, maintenance or fix of the space station happened in 1998, when the NASA still used space shuttles and the space station itself was like a tiny, New York City apartment compared to the expansive space mansion that it is today.
The first spacewalk ever conducted at the station was on December 7 that year.
