Yeah, I heard a little about it, and now after reading your article I know more.

This sounds like it may be a recurrence of an earlier problem back in 2007.
No one sounds like they're really all that alarmed, but it doesn't sound good to me.
If they can't fix it, and or it worsens, it could be a real serious problem.

It sounds like 3 people are coming back on Monday, and another launch is expected in about 2 1/2 weeks.
In my view, they need to pinpoint the problem before that launch. 1: So they aren't sending people into a dangerous situation. 2: They may need special tools sent up to fix the problem.

Here's the latest from Hadfield aboard the ISS.

"Tomorrow we send 2 crew out into the thermal vacuum wearing cloth-and-rubber pressure suits to repair ISS. Extra study of procedures tonight"

"I am up a bit late studying, just to help make sure that I do my part right. Goodnight soon from ISS."

Those were 2 separate messages.

Here's what Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield had to say about it today.

"What a fun day! This type of event is what the years of training were for. A happy, busy crew, working hard, loving life in space."

It doesn't sound like he's too worried about it.
