(Undated) -- Astronauts on board the International Space Station are dealing with a cooling system failure. NBC reports that a NASA official says the situation is not life-threatening but it has required a cutback in normal operations. The report says one of the station's two cooling loops has shut down and the six-person crew is prioritizing life support systems. The issue may require a spacewalk to make the necessary repairs. NASA says "the crew was never in any danger" and "they're fine for the near future."
