As two astronauts make what The Associated Press writes is “a hastily planned spacewalk Saturday to try to fix an ammonia leak in the power system of the International Space Station,” NASA is webcasting.

It’s estimated they’ll be working on the problem for about six hours. The leak is not presenting a danger, NASA says, and the space station still has plenty of power.
