Just had to post this gem . Imange the guy holding cables hoping for a passing UFO to give him a jump start .
But i did hear they got it running after a second astronaut came out and helped push start it.
LOl well come on it is science . Ps we all know how hard it can be to start a car on a cold -10% winter day .
In space its -200 .

They didn't say what caused it to get stuck. I was wondering if it could have been something like this cold welding?
Cold fusion around the ISS
Basically the video explains how two pieces of metal can stick together in space if there's no oxidized layer on the surface (which forms on Earth, but not in space).
It had nothing to do with needing jumper cables.
This post would probably be a better fit in the "Space Exploration" forum.
