Home of astronauts on the International Space Station air leak

Kenny Todd, deputy manager of the space station, said the leak was first discovered more than a year ago, but had increased in the past two months. A new round of testing overnight on Monday revealed that the leak was in a service module in the Russian region, TD said during a NASA briefing on Tuesday.

“We will try and put an excellent point on our troubleshooting plan,” Todd said, adding that the team is working with the same leaks as before in the new space.

Russian space agency Rozkosmos has confirmed that the leak is coming from one of its service modules.

“A search is currently underway to determine the exact cause of the leak,” the agency said Tweeted. “The situation poses no threat to the life and health of the crew and does not impede the operation of the crew at the station.”

NASA astronauts Chris Cassidy and Roscosmosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Evan Wagner conducted boardboard tests.

NASA said in a blog post on Tuesday that the size of the leak, known overnight, was then attributed to a change in the temporary temperature at the station, as the overall rate of the leak remained unchanged, NASA said in a blog post on Tuesday.

The International Space Station crew will spend this week testing cabin air leaks

Crew members experience comfortable pressure while in the orbital laboratory, while the space station experiences small air leaks over time.

Regular pressing is possible thanks to the nitrogen tank that is included in the cargo ripple mission that delivers them to the space station.

Now the next Rizpley mission is coming up this weekend. Northrop Grumman Cygnus Cargo Craft arrived in the U.S. on Thursday night. In the state of Virginia, Wall Street will begin with a flight facility.

The International Space Station leak is stable, the Russian space agency says

Crew members will then rotate. NASA astronauts Kate Rubins and Russian cosmonauts Sergey Ryazikov and Sergei Kud-Sverkov will depart from Kazakhstan’s Baikonur Cosmodrome on October 14 and dock at the space station, while Cassidy, Wagner and Ivanishin will return to the station. .

The trio will spend 195 days together on the space station after launching in April.

Then, on October 23, the SpaceX Crew-1 mission will take NASA astronauts Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Waker and the Japanese space agency astronaut Sochi Noguchi to the space station.
