A KY oxygen air supply system on the International Space Station broke down this week after crew members were able to locate the source of a large air leak using TEA bags.
The Russian space agency Roscomos said on Thursday that the failure of a module in the Russian section of the station – which orbits the earth 2,260 miles – did not endanger the crew.
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s second supply system was operating normally when oxygen was lost from the Jezveda module, a spokesman told AFP.
“Nothing threatens the security of the crew and the ISS,” the spokesman said.
Cosmonaut Anatoly Ivanishin said the ISS crew had discovered the source of an air leak that had plagued the ISS for months.
The astronauts accidentally stumbled upon a potential cabin violation after a tea bag floated into the gallows.
“We have a number of pictures and videos that show the direction of the tea bag trip,” Evinsin told the state-owned Russian TSS news agency.
Oxygen failure and air leakage – It is also not clear whether Javazeda is located in the module.
The oxygen crash happened late Wednesday night, according to Rosecoms. Repair work was done to solve this problem on Thursday.
The issue arose on Wednesday after three crew members – two astronauts and an astronaut – joined the ISS and took a total of six people.
The problem is the recent intrusion of recent issues surrounding the ISS, since August the crew has been trying to fly what the pilots have been trying to identify including.
The issue briefly compelled the station’s crew to use its Russian division as a safety precaution, while NASA shouted for Cluti – only to realize that the source of the leak was coming from the Russian division.
Thanks to some floating tea bags, the crew now believe they have finally found the source, which Russia’s Flight Control Center has suggested will keep astronauts on tape for now, TASS News reported.
Flight controllers instructed the crew to send photos and videos of the potential air leak area to further persuade them.
What is ISS?
Here’s what you need to know about the International Space Station …
- The International Space Station, often abbreviated to ISS, is a huge spacecraft that orbits the earth and is inhabited by astronauts who go there to complete scientific missions.
- Many countries worked together to create it and they worked together to use it
- It was made up of several pieces, which the astronauts had to send separately to the rocket and held together from 1998 to 2000.
- People have lived in the ISS since 2000
- NASA uses the station to learn about living and working in space
- It orbits the Earth about two and a half miles above and around the planet like a satellite
- Living inside the ISS is said to be like living in a large house with five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a gym, plenty of science labs and a huge bay window.
The last major air leak at the station was discovered two years ago and sparked a rare public battle between NASA and Roscomos.
A drop of pressure led to the detection of a hole in a Russian Soyuz capsule attached to an orbital station overnight on August 30, 2018.
The crew of the station quickly violated it by plugging in with strong glue and gauze
It was initially thought that this damage could be caused by a micromiore by piercing a spacecraft.
But a space source speaking to Russia’s state-run Tass news agency in September 2018 claimed that signs of drilling had been found around the hole.
Dmitry Rogozin, head of Russia’s space agency – a close ally of Vladimir Putin – then raised the possibility of sabotage.
He said the hole was made with a drill, giving the capsule a “hand-shaking hand” when it was on Earth or in space.
NASA issued a counter-statement arguing that the fact that the errors were blown up “does not mean that the hole was made intentionally or with malicious intent.”
The then ISS commander Alexander Jarst later confirmed that the hole was the result of faulty repair work that the mechanics on the ground had performed inadequately.
The official Russian investigation ended in September 2012, but the results are confidential, and even NASA boss Jim Bridenstein expressed frustration with being away from the loop.
