Russia has told about growth of a hole in a covering of "Union"


Mission control centers in Moscow and Houston have data about gradually accruing within several days, before detection of an opening in the Union of MS-09 ship, leak of air at the ISS that makes impossible the version about "astronauts saboteurs", has told RIA Novosti a source in space-rocket branch. "Sensors of the International Space Station fixed small pressure drop several days prior to detection of an opening in the Union of MS-09 ship. However before she has exceeded threshold value in 0,5 millimeters of mercury column an hour, didn't react to it as such falling is considered admissible" — the interlocutor of the agency has told. Materials on teme00:02 — Have done some flying on July 3 and there will be enough Roskosmos will give everything for the most useless Rossiipo rocket to his data, pressure fell within two-three days, and the decision has been made to react at night on August 30 when leak in 0,8 millimeters of mercury column has been recorded. According to the interlocutor, given to the Russian TsUP about the speed of leak have been transferred by the American side. The source has noted that if the opening has been made crew, internal ISS sensors would record sharp pressure drop right after the drill has passed a wall of the ship and air has begun to come out in space. "More plausible, on the basis of the available data, the version seems that has begun to exhaust sealant from the opening which is closed up on Earth gradually in space until the opening has completely opened" — the interlocutor considers.

In turn, the CEO of Roskosmos Dmitry Rogozin has assumed that the opening in the case of "Union" could be made in an orbit. Rogozin has reported on August 30 about leak of air at the ISS. The reason of malfunctions — an opening with a diameter about two millimeters in a covering of the piloted Union ship docked to the Russian segment of the station. Subsequently it became known that leak is caused by deliberate impact of a drill on a ship covering. The Russian astronauts managed to close up an opening quickly.
