According to NASA, a ceramic seal went out of order at one of the shuttle’s windows and a scratch on a thermal tablet over the cabin was detected. At present, the space agency is deciding upon whether repairs should be carried out in the orbit. The crews of the docked ISS and Endeavor Shuttle are expected to deploy the new technological Tranquility and Cupola modules during their joint 9-day-mission. Undocking of the shuttle is scheduled for February 19th and two days after this it will return to Earth.
