Astronauts spot smoke on International Space Station

issAstronauts got a scare when they saw smoke on the International Space Station.

Russian flight observers saw smoke coming from the module, which houses living quarters and some of the life support functions.

The ISS crew thinks it came from a heater, so they shut it down and set up a filter to clear the smoke.

NASA says everything is now okay.
