OK, here's the theory: The universe is not only expanding, everything in it is expanding too. Ergo, the space station is expanding which causes the air pressure to drop. Either that or President Bush is stealing the air to kill these guys and cause pain for their families/children.

I just pulled the names off the long, long orbiter thread. Curious what you folks think. Thanks for posting Blam.

I would ask commiecrat senator Patrick Leahy where the leak is.

Micro-meteorite? Didn't they hear a bang a few weeks back that's still unexplained?

There are plenty of places on Earth where people live with much lower air pressure...
IIRC, the Apollo era pressure was 5 psi. Probably had to boost it in order to provide an environment that a relatively
non-select portion of the population could get in to space [aboard US craft].
Bloating in females, comes to mind. (Maybe I should say brain swelling comes to mind, first?)
I think it was a "safety" design. That pressure could be maintained long enough for the donning of pressure suits if the capsule acquired 0.5" hole.
Just spray the outside with soapy water and look for the bubbles.

Leaks? We didn't send this guy up there, did we?

Did they check the AE-35 unit?

Potentially scary stuff. Slow leaks sometimes have a tendency to turn into fast ones.

Perhaps this is a manifestation of Ross Perot's giant sucking sound.
I hope they do have some plan such as putting glue in the cracks.
