Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:

We noticed some broken plastic in one of the helmets. See picture attached. We didn’t have any impacts or collisions with this helmet so we don’t know if it was already there or not. It doesn’t let any air out but should the Crew Engineer still try to fix it with glue?
