I have a question about placement of ice damage. The rules state that during you´re status phace. "Place 1 Ice damage in every space that is
orthogonally adjacent to ice damage". If there is spaces above, below, to the left and to the right of a Ice damage do you place 4 new ice-damage markers on those spaces?

Yes. One on each orthogonally adjacent space that is not already damaged. For that reason it’s much better to choose a secluded corner space as the initial location damaged by ice when the opportunity allows in order to slow the spread.

u could also block the ice spreading with a normal damage lets say u have 1 ice damage in a corner of your ship then if u also get normal damage place it arround the ice damage if possible so that it wil not spread any further.

Also, if you have an armor module, and you take 2 ice damage, you could place them at either end of the module, so when they spread they both do it into the same space, saving 1 point of damage.
Also remember that ALL ice thaws when you are on a planet in the station - it does not need to be fixed.

p.s.
You can use your shields to block the 1 point of ice damage from Exploration Tokens.

Am I allowed to move cargo cubes to another cargo hold when placing ice damage?

No. Cargo and outfits can only be rearranged during the business phase.
