NASA tweeted that the space station is in good condition and the Expedition 68 crew is safe. This was also confirmed by the Russian space corporation Roscosmos.

According to cosmonautic specialist Mikael Vaclavic of the Czech Space Agency and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Czech Technical University in Prague, the probe does not overheat due to leakage of coolant.

“Using the ERA Manipulator (Robotic arm on ISS – Editor’s note) Another test was conducted. “The ground teams will analyze the whole situation,” Vaclavic pointed out in the morning, adding that sending a replacement Soyuz into orbit was also in play.

According to an afternoon statement by former Russian cosmonaut Sergei Krikalyov, the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft’s radiator and service module may have been damaged by the impact of a micrometeorite or cosmic debris.

“The malfunction may affect the performance of the module’s cooling system, but it will not endanger the crew,” said Krikaliev, currently executive director of Roscosmos’ unmanned programs, AP agency reports.

A month ago there was a problem with the spacesuits

The two Russians were carried to the ISS on a Soyuz rocket that took off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on September 21. They were supposed to carry out the planned mission last month, but the spacesuits malfunctioned. The astronauts then replaced the faulty parts of the spacesuits.

The International Space Station is a joint project of NASA, Roscosmos, the European Agency ESA, Japan and Canada. Dmitry Rogozin, the former head of Roscosmos, has issued several threats to the United States and other Western countries in the past regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the imposition of anti-Russian sanctions by the West.

Despite the split, NASA and Roscosmos agreed to continue joint flights to the ISS. The International Space Station is currently one of the last areas of cooperation between Moscow and the West.
