The International Space Station has sprung a leak, according to NASA. That’s not quite as alarming as it sounds – the ISS is always leaking a small amount of air – but it’s bad enough that the current three-man crew is hunkered down in one module while NASA tries to locate and fix the problem.
NASA is investigating a small but persistent air leak on the ISS. While that may sound worrisome, NASA isn't fretting it, saying the leak 'presents no immediate danger to the crew or the space station.' https://t.co/dqz1vfmWIz

NASA says the leak “presents no immediate danger to the crew”. If things take a turn for the worse, a Soyuz MS-16 spaceship is docked at the station ready to bring the crew home in an emergency.
