NASA suspends routine spacewalks for the time being due to leaking spacesuit helmet

NASA is suspending all but the most urgent spacewalks after water was found in an astronaut’s helmet after a March field trip, agency officials said on Tuesday (May 17).

NASA will conduct an assessment of its extravehicular mobility unit (EMU) spacesuits after water was found in the helmet worn by European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Matthias Maurer after a spacewalk on March 23, agency officials said.
