Description

Contaminations of oil droplets in NASA's entire inventory of space suits could have led to fires inside the suits. NASA's prime contractor for space suits spent the summer of 2000 fixing the suits' backup oxygen systems so the International Space Station could be assembled in time on September. NASA and the contractor are still investigating the problem, which may be due to standards that weren't stringent enough or leaky pump seals.
