Astronauts complete dangerous spacewalk

While you were doing your last-minute Christmas shopping, way up high - more than 200 miles above the planet - two astronauts were taking part in a risky spacewalk.

The astronauts were on a mission to fix a cooling pump malfunction on the International Space Station, a critical problem that, if left unattended, could have resulted in an evacuation.

CNN's Alina Machado updated Dana Bash on the situation.
