CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- The International Space Station is experiencing a slow, steady drop in air pressure, and American and Russian flight controllers are investigating possible causes of the leak.

I have asked that this be upgraded to an ATSNN. Good job!

This is concerning. And just as the article points out, the first thing that crossed my mind was the event back about a month ago when the crew heard a "crackling" or "crunching" news.

The second part that kind of disturbs me is the oxygen generator being on the blitz. You really don't want to be losing atmosphere, and then unable to replenish all at the same time.

It's the Russian's side...let them fix it.

It reminds me of the movie Armagddon.
