The air is escaping from the Russian division of the International Space Station (ISS) and the error has not yet been corrected, according to Saturday’s media reports. Experts are now considering whether or not to close the faulty department for the two Russian cosmonauts and touch the oxygen reserves.
The leak is probably on the Zvezda module, but they don’t know exactly where. A 4.5-centimeter-diameter gap was discovered in October, but it was then patched without knowing what it caused. They then noticed that there was another leak. A spacewalk had already been carried out in November to explore its location, but to no avail.
If astronauts and the ground control center were to conclude that the leaking division had to be shut down, it would affect the entire space station and the activities of all astronauts working there. Russian space research company Roscosmos said no one on the ISS was in danger. Currently, in addition to the two Russians, four American and one Japanese astronauts are at the station.
