On a recent spacewalk the crew aboard the International Space Station found mysterious black spots, or residue, around some port vents. These vents
are used to pass residue and contaminents, over board, produced by the carbon dioxide removal system. This residue seems to be sticking to the vents
and could be what has caused past problems with the stations air rejuvination system. Could this be a major problem in the future if these vents
continue to become clogged?
