A software developed by aerospace engineers at the University of Buffalo (www.buffalo.edu) may help NASA detect air leaks at the International Space Station. Currently, locating a leak involves closing off modules individually. The software can correlate any disturbance with the geometric structure of the ISS, finding the location and size of the leak faster.
