CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. NASA called off a spacewalk on Friday at the International Space Station after one of the astronauts reported a possible leak in his spacesuit helmet, the U.S. space agency said.

Tim Peake, who on the mission became first astronaut from Britain to walk in space, and U.S. astronaut Timothy Kopra, had finished the primary goal of their outing when Kopra reported a water bubble had formed in his helmet.

NASA said the crew is not in any danger.
