Chicago doc's spacewalk hits snag

November 23, 2009 9:06:50 AM PST
The space shuttle astronauts are back at work after Monday's spacewalk was delayed due to problems with Dr. Robert Satcher's suit. Satcher is a surgeon from Chicago.

A valve on the drink bag in his suit came off as he was getting ready to step out. That valve had to be reattached.

Satcher and Randolph Bresnik, whose wife gave birth to a girl Saturday, will hook up a fresh oxygen tank to the International Space Station Monday.
