A later inspection inside the station turned up a small tear on one of the spacewalkers' gloves, and a pair of needle-nose pliers was lost in space.
Hello?? A pair of needle-nose pliers is LOST IN SPACE? What exactly does this mean? OK, fellas, it's dandy that they won't dent the space station, but let's consider the other possibilities here. Shouldn't we be a bit more concerned about this?
Will the pliers be sucked into some perpetual planetary orbit, never to be seen again?
Or will they randomly plummet to earth?
And if they do plummet to earth, where will they fall?
And most importantly, will they fall with the pointy end down?
Just to be on the safe side, until the pliers are located, don your bike helmet and don't look up.
