  2. Turns out Luca Parmitano’s Spacesuit Leak Was Discovered a Week Before It Almost Drowned Him

    "Sorry about that time we sent you into space in a death trap." - NASA, basically.

    We were all pretty horrified to hear that Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano almost drowned in his space suit on a spacewalk outside the ISS in July, but details are just now emerging that the leak was discovered a week earlier. At the time, it appeared that the leak wasn't a threat, so they let him use the suit again, which didn't go so great.
