Nasa junks space mission


A MISSION to replace an antenna on the Internatio­nal Space Station has been postponed because of the danger from floating space junk.

Nasa detected a piece of orbiting debris which it feared could puncture the suits of the station’s astronauts who were due to do the work during a spacewalk.

It was not clear whether the junk had come from a satellite that was destroyed by Russia in a missile test two weeks ago.
