Video Footage of the NASA Screw up: Losing Tools in Space

International Space Station astronaut Heidimarie Stefanyshyn-Piper, was attempting to do some work on the Space Station.  She was going along and then realized that her NASA-issued grease gun exploded in her tool bag.

She tried to fix the problem, but she couldn’t, and $100,000 + worth of tools are now floating in space somewhere because of her screw up.
