Russian Soyuz spacecraft leaks coolant due to skin damage. There are currently three people in the damaged Soyuz capsule.

NASA has asked SpaceX for help in rescuing three astronauts stranded on a damaged Russian Soyuz spacecraft at the International Space Station. On Wednesday, December 28, according to Reuters.

It was noted that on December 14, the Russian Soyuz spacecraft leaked coolant due to skin damage. There were three astronauts aboard at the time – one American and two Russians – who arrived at the ISS in September to conduct a six-month mission.

Now they are in a damaged Soyuz capsule docked at the ISS. The astronauts kept the station hatch open so that their temperature would not rise in the ship. The head of the Russian manned space programs, Sergei Krikalev, told reporters that the temperature in the capsule would rise rapidly if the hatch to the station were closed.

Now another ship is also docked at the ISS – SpaceX’s Crew Dragon. Four more astronauts flew to the station here. NASA is asking SpaceX to return the Soyuz crew to Earth with this vehicle. But the problem is, there are only four seats on the ship.

Roskosmos also said that they are considering how to save the three astronauts. It was planned to send another Union after them. But the final decision was postponed until January.

Remember, according to Roskosoms, during the preparation process, the external radiator circuit of the Soyuz spacecraft is depressurized. The cause of the leak in the apparatus’s cooling system may have been a micrometeorite hit. It was later reported that during an inspection of the exterior of Soyuz MS-22, a possible area of ​​damage was discovered in the instrument cluster compartment.
