Power outage hampers spacewalk


INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION (WKOW) – Some anxious moments in outer space Monday for a couple of astronauts working on the International Space Station.

They were installing an antenna on the outside of the station when a power outage knocked out the main computer and brought their spacewalk to a sudden stop.

NASA says neither was in any danger.  In less than a half-hour, everything was back to normal, though the backup computer remained in charge.

Two more spacewalks are scheduled later this week.
