WATCH Cooling System Aboard International Space Station Fails

Living at the International Space Station can be difficult and even hazardous even in the best of times, but six astronauts are confined this week to just a handful of living modules after a cooling system had to be shut down because of temperature fluctuations.

NASA engineers are working around the clock in so-called "Tiger Teams" to isolate and find solutions to the cooling problems while astronauts on board prepare for a worst-case scenario: performing a space walk to fix a valve on the outside of the station.

Take a look at these photos of what life is like aboard the ISS:
