    The officials said they were not worried about reports from the
astronauts early last week of a leaking cloud of debris from the
outside of the Spektr module. Viktor D. Blagov, the deputy mission
controller, said the debris appeared to be coming from a radiator
on the outside of Spektr. He said there was no reason to think
dangerous chemicals were swirling inside the damaged module. No
debris has been seen in recent days.
