Italian astronaut says he is ready to resume space walk


Rome, August 5 - Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano
was preparing Monday for his previously postponed space walk
outside the International Space Station.
The last walk, originally scheduled for July 19, was
postponed because of a water leakage in his space helmet.
That seems to have been fixed and he and colleague
Christopher Cassidy are ready to go, he said Monday.
"Chris and I have the equipment ready and everything in
position," said Parmitano.
"We just have to collect all the components that we had
brought...and we are ready to pick up where we left off".
During last month's attempt, Parmitano's eyes, nose and
mouth were soaked from water inside the helmet after an hour,
and the six-hour spacewalk was called off
