The Russian cargo ship Progress on the International Space Station has been depressurized. This is the second incident in two months.
The second accident involving a Russian spacecraft has occurred at the International Space Station in two months, Space reports.
According to media reports, the spacecraft, docked at the ISS, began to leak. This time, Russian controllers on Earth noticed on Saturday, February 11, a depressurization in the Progress-82 cargo spacecraft. NASA reported that there was a depressurization of the ship’s cooling system.
The US space agency said that the cause of the coolant leak from the cooling system is still unknown. Despite the accident, the temperature and pressure in the station remained within normal limits and there was no threat to the ISS crew.
It will be remembered that on December 15, the spacewalk of Russian cosmonauts from the ISS was canceled for technical reasons.
According to Roskosomsa, in the preparation process, a depressurization of the external radiator circuit of the Soyuz spacecraft occurred. The cause of the leak in the apparatus’s cooling system may have been a micrometeorite hit.
NASA had previously said that all ISS systems and the ship were working normally, the crew was safe.
