Indian Astronaut May Pay A Short Visit to International Space Station

Indian Astronaut May Pay A Short Visit to International Space Station”

"The agreement is expected to be signed in the near future", the source said.

The air leak was detected on August 29 after a slight drop in pressure aboard the station, which was then traced to a 0.08-inch-wide (2 millimeters) hole in a Soyuz capsule that docked to the space station in June and will remain there until October.

NASA issued a statement to limit speculation, after the Russian space agency Roscosmos "ruled out" a manufacturing defect.

NASA denied to comment on those remarks at the time. Despite statements to the contrary from both the Station commander and the Russian Deputy Prime Minister, the rumor continues to grow as the head of Roscosmos has now issued a statement saying that the hole was not a Russian manufacturing defect and that another commission is investigating. Megan Powers, NASA spokeswoman said on Wednesday restored media reports about the likelihood of deliberate harm to the Soyuz module originated from "rough translation" by some Western news outlets of Rogozin's most recent comments. While intentional damage remains one of numerous possibilities still under review. "We will find the reason and we will reveal the reason no matter what it is". The two leaders will meet for the first time in person on October 11 when Russia launches NASA Astronaut Nick Hague and Russian Cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin to the space station from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

Administrator Bridenstine is scheduled to attend the launch and plans to meet with Mr. Rogozin.

Feustel on Wednesday turned over command of the station to European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst of Germany.

"Special thanks to the crew of the 55th and 56th expeditions for their support and participation in our mission to explore outer space".
