NASA plans spacewalk to scrutinize tiny ISS hole, as the United States space agency tamps down hypothesis that damage caused a modest hole discovered a month ago in the side of a Russian module docked at the International Space Station, however the mystery is still unsolved.
Rogozin and NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine are due to meet in person for the first time next week, a visit scheduled to coincide with the launch of cosmonaut Alexy Ovchinin and astronautNick Hague. Many Russian cosmonauts, past and present, train and stay with their families in this facility, which is run by Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, it added. "It concluded that a manufacturing defect had been ruled out which is important to establish the truth", said the man who leads the nation's space agency.
NASA declined to comment on those remarks at the time.
Powers said that, while intentional damage remains one of numerous possibilities still under review, "we're not expecting it was a bad actor. we don't think that's the most likely conclusion".
Astronauts have said the 2-millimeter hole is a clean one that was "clearly man-made", not a jagged strike from a micrometeorite or space junk, though the joint investigation has not yet confirmed that.
ISS commander Feustel has called the suggestion that the crew was somehow involved "embarrassing" and NASA on Wednesday expressed doubts over the theory that the hole was the result of sabotage.
That suggests the hole was "an isolated issue", NASA said, not one expected to reappear on the next Soyuz, which is scheduled to launch October 11 from Kazakhstan with NASA's Nick Hague and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin.
