No answer from Nasa yet - maybe they're shy.

Im sure its the last thing on Nasa's mind

I was always told that a hacksaw blade was different to a normal saw blade and that it cuts on the push not the pull but I could well be misinformed

It does when under tension in a normal saw frame - but not in a simple handle like that.

I bet it wouldn't have been the last thing on their mind if the fkkr had snapped and damaged the tiles, or the space suite.
