Astronaut may get Christmas wish for spacewalk

Space station astronaut Rick Mastracchio may get his Christmas wish for a spacewalk or two because of a broken cooling system.

Mastracchio, an experienced spacewalker, said he’s more than ready to go out and make repairs, if deemed necessary by Mission Control.

"Any time you have something like this, it’s good news, bad news," Mastracchio told The Associated Press on Friday.”
