Laboratories in the U.S. portion of the International Space Station are running at full power again, officials said Thursday, after a pair of spacewalks to repair a partially failed cooling system. Teams in Houston worked through Christmas Day to activate a new coolant pump installed during the second spacewalk on Tuesday, and to integrate it with equipment that transfers heat generated inside the outpost to giant radiators outside.
