Spacewalking astronauts check site of capsule leak

The then-Expedition 56 crew, including Prokopyev, Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency (ESA) and Serena Auñón-Chancellor of NASA, were able to trace the leak back to a 0.1-inch (2 millimeters) hole in the orbital compartment of the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft, which was docked to the Rassvet module on the Russian segment of the space station.

The Soyuz capsule had been used to deliver a new crew to the laboratory 400km (250 miles) above the Earth in June. The use was a complicated and physically demanding, with less than eight hours, it lasted nearly an hour and a half longer than planned. They plan to uncover the thermal insulation covering the patched hole and take samples for experts to study.

Nasa said, according to the outdoor use, prior to the clarification by the Russian specialists for each statement too early.

In the case of the Soyuz drill hole, however, Rosmocosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin said in October that the investigation had ruled out manufacturing errors and was considering whether the hole was due to "deliberate interference in space".

The Soyuz is scheduled to depart the orbiting lab on December 19, US time, with Prokopyev, American Serena Aunon-Chancellor and German Alexander Gerst, the station's current skipper. The module is blown off on the return flight and burns up empty in All. The materials will be brought back to Earth for further examination.
