The head of the Russian space organization caused a movement last week when he said that a hole drilled through the side of the Soyuz ferry driven to the international space station was"either on earth or in space. " Station manager Drew Feustel said Tuesday it really did not happen in circulation.
"I can say unequivocally that the crew had nothing to do with this in circulation without a doubt, and I think it's a shame and a bit embarrassing someone hurts to talk about something that the crew was involved in," Feustel said in a interview with ABC News Tuesday.
"The only thing the crew did was to respond appropriately, follow our emergency procedures, eventually" he said. "This was why we assured the space station about continued operation, we ensured that our crew could stay on track and continue to do the great work we do … at the International Space Station. "
Flight inspectors in Houston and Moscow noted a slight drop in the station's internal air pressure on August 29 . The next day, the crew crew tracked the leak to the room of the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft carrying three crew members to the complex in June.
Kosmonau Terna Oleg Artemyev and Soyuz MS-09 Commander Sergey Prokopyev finally sealed the crime of epoxy drought. The cabin press has been stable since then and in any case, the crew was never in immediate danger. The top of Soyuz is thrown before atmospheric dump and it can be sealed after the crew is on board if needed.
Photos clearly showed several scars caused by a drill and a small hole connected by the cosmonauts. [1
