Astronauts in an outer space reached an opening in "the Union of MS-09" — Rambler News Service


The Russian astronauts Oleg Kononenko and Sergey Prokopyev left in an outer space and reached an opening in the Union of MS-09 ship, having opened micrometeoric protection, RIA Novosti reports. At the same time to astronauts to reach an opening, it was necessary to cut off from protective material two pieces at once, but not one as it was planned. Konenko and Prokopyev also said that they did not notice a point against which could rest a drill on these pieces if the hole was made from within the ship. Astronauts took samples of sealant which closed an opening and also from a surface around it. These materials were laid in the isolating container. On August 30 at the ISS in a household compartment of the Union of MS-09 ship docked to the station air leak was found. The crew found an opening in a ship covering then on the advice of the Central Office Flights (COF) the Russian astronauts filled in an opening with sealant. The internal commission of RSC Energia which made the spaceship excluded the version of a manufacturing defect. The head of Roskosmos Dmitry Rogozin said in an interview of The New York Times that the opening was made deliberately. "It was the intended action which is carried out manually" — Rogozin said. At the same time he noted that it is still unclear whether the opening was made before missile launch or already in an orbit.
