Canceling a space walk due to a water leak in the helmet of the astronaut

H NASA canceled the planned six-hour spacewalk when one of the two astronauts carrying it out of the International Space Station reported a "large amount of water" leaking into his helmet.

The astronaut Luke Parmitano of European Space Agency said the helmet began to fill with water, making it quite difficult for him to continue his space walk outside the International Space Station. The space walk ended after one hour and 32 minutes, while it should take six hours and 15 minutes.
