  • Astronauts Repair Hole in International Space Station

After a hole was detected in the Russian Soyuz module docked at the ISS last Thursday, the country's space agency initially believed that a meteorite had hit the spacecraft. More importantly, he also hints at the fact that the hole was made from the inside, possibly on objective, although it is unclear whether it was made on Earth or in space. Investigations are now underway on the incident. Was the sealing. On the ship and on the station itself began to decline pressure.

In interviews with the Russian news outlet Tass last week, Rogozin theorized that the hole may have been caused by an "accidental defect" that occurred while the spacecraft was being built, or a "deliberate spoilage". It may be small, but if it was left unfixed, all the air in the ISS would have escaped in only 18 days.

United States astronauts have to use Russian rockets to get to the ISS - something which has been put at risk by ongoing rows with the Kremlin.

The crew temporarily taped over the hole the following morning, which slowed the leak. "The one about a meteorite impact has been rejected because the spaceship's hull was evidently impacted from inside", he continued.

Note that the pressure drop of the air inside the ISS recorded 30 August.

Now, however, it is being revealed that the hole was the not the result of a micrometeorite hit.

While he said it was too early to come to a conclusion, "it seems to be done by a faltering hand". The hole was plugged up, but the material that was used to do so was suddenly dislodged.

NASA on Wednesday announced that the International Space Station (ISS) had sprang a "minute pressure leak" in orbit some 250 miles above Earth.

"There were several attempts at drilling", Rogozin said late on Monday in televised comments, adding that the drill appeared to have been held by a "wavering hand".

There is also a prevailing theory from the Russian space industry where insiders have reportedly said that the craft could have gotten damaged while testing.

But the story took a weird turn on Monday when Dmitriy Rogozin, the head of Roscosmos, Russia's space agency, alluded to possible sabotage - maybe even in space.

Gerst of Germany and astronaut Serena Auñón of U.S. and cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev from Russian Federation are all due to using the same affected Soyuz vehicle to return to Earth before the end of this year.

Sources claim that the person has already been found, and he explained that the hole was created by accident and with no malicious intent.
