NASA reported a problem Wednesday at the International Space Station but said the crew was not in any danger.
One of two large coolant loops at the ISS -- on which electrical systems ride -- shut down earlier in the day, Josh Byerly, a spokesman for the US space agency, told AFP.
"At no time was the crew ever in danger," Byerly said. "The crew is fine."
He said the issue is likely linked to a valve problem, he said.
A lot of the systems in European and Japanese laboratories aboard the ISS have been switched onto the other coolant loop or shut down, he said.
