WASHINGTON - NASA said Wednesday it was looking into a problem with a malfunctioning cooling pump on the International Space Station, but there was no immediate danger to the six crewmen on board.
A valve on a pump on one of the station's two external cooling loops shut down because it was too cool Wednesday afternoon, NASA spokesman Bob Jacobs said.
"It could be a serious problem, but it's not an emergency," Johnson Space Center spokesman Kelly Humphries said.
