In the statement made by ISS at night, the following statements were included;

“There is no emergency on the International Space Station.

At approximately 5:28 PM CDT (central daylight time), audio was broadcast on a NASA livestream from a simulated audio channel on the ground indicating that a crew member was experiencing effects related to decompression sickness (DCS).

This audio was accidentally misdirected from an ongoing simulation in which crew members and ground crews train for various scenarios in space, and is not related to an actual emergency.

The International Space Station crew was in a sleep period at the time. “Everyone is healthy and safe, and tomorrow’s spacewalk will begin at 8 a.m. as planned.”
