Astronaut Suffers Medical Incident on Space Station

NASA said that it was not an emergency.
Sick Day

NASA reports that Mark Vande Hei is a current crew member aboard the International Space Station. He has had a minor medical problem. CNN reports that a scheduled extravehicular activ (EVA), or space walk, was delayed due to this.

NASA also stated that this issue is not a matter of medical emergency.

Take it off

CNN reports that although the EVA was originally scheduled for Tuesday, it will have to be rescheduled. CNN suggests that Vande Hei is not up for the challenge because they are able to anticipate the issue a day ahead of time.

Spacewalks will take place after a SpaceX Dragon cargo resupply launch this weekend.



Vande Hei, along with cosmonauts Oleg Novatskiy and Pyotr dubrov, traveled to the ISS aboard a Soyuz spacecraft.

This story is still in development and will be updated.
