Space station crew staying put despite leak

CREATED May. 10, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) - Engineers expect to find out today just how serious the radiator leak is in the International Space Station's power system.
   
A radiator loop in which ammonia cools the system has been leaking. Engineers have been doing some rerouting of electronics to bypass that leaky loop.
   
Officials say there are no plans for an early departure of the crew from the space station.
