The temperature on board the spacecraft docked at the ISS has dropped, remaining within normal limits, Roscosmos said.
During an inspection of the exterior of the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft docked at the International Space Station, a possible area of damage was found in the instrument-aggregate compartment. It was reported on December 19 at Roscosmos.
“According to visual materials received on Earth, a possible site of damage to the ship’s instrument-assembly compartment was found. Specialists continue to analyze the data received,” the company said.
It was also noted that the temperature on board the Soyuz MS-22 dropped, remaining within normal limits.
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 cooling system of the apparatus could be the entry of a micrometeorite.
NASA had previously said that all ISS systems and the ship were working normally, the crew was safe.
Currently on the station are Russian cosmonauts Sergei Prokopiev, Dmitry Petelin, Anna Kikina, American astronauts Frank Rubio, Josh Kassada, Nicole Mann, and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Koichi Wakata.
