Space officials from NASA and the Russian Space Agency have come together to try and figure out why the International Space Station is steadily losing air. They say it’s nothing serious, but so far the station has lost about 1% of its air pressure; it’s still a very safe environment for the astronauts. The astronauts now have to search the station, checking all the valves and gauges to try and determine what could be causing the leak – since the station is so large, it could take a long time. It’s believed that the leak could have started as early as December 22, 2003.
