ISS crew ceases space walk

The crewmembers of the International Space Station (ISS) have stopped their space walk ahead of schedule. The reason for this decision of the astronauts was the overheating of the space-suit of Russian cosmonaut Alexander Kaleri, the Mayak radio station reported.

As reported earlier, the crew of the ISS began a space walk today. The tasks of the astronauts were to conduct a number of scientific experiments and to assemble some equipment. In total, the astronauts were to stay outside the ISS for about 5.5 hours.

The present crew has been working on the ISS since October 2003, and the return of the astronauts to earth is scheduled for April of this year.
