'Space guests': Russian cosmonaut captures possible UFO footage from ISS

'Space guests': Russian cosmonaut captures possible UFO footage from ISS”

The atmosphere in the off-word laboratory is normally maintained at a pressure comfortable for the crew members to go about their daily work. Leader Chris Cassidy and also his crewmates Ivan Vagner and also Anatoly Ivanishin will definitely remain in the Zvezda solution element coming from Friday evening in to Monday early morning. The test presents no safety concern for the crew.

NASA astronauts aboard the ISS are at present doing the job tough to come across and fix a compact, persistent air leak aboard the place station.

It is not known if the leak is in the United States or Russian segment, so the space station hatches will be battened down this weekend and mission controllers will carefully monitor the air pressure in each module to determine which is experiencing a higher-than-normal leak rate. NASA and Roscosmos expect that preliminary results of the investigation will be available next week. Some air leakage from the station is regular, and NASA suggests that this distinct leak has been on its radar for a whilst.

On August 19, Expedition 63 Commander Cassidy switched off communications gear that was used to send commands to Japan's H-II Transfer Vehicle-9 (HTV-9), which departed on August 18. Issues have been fairly fast paced on the ISS considering that September, with astronauts conducting several spacewalks and new automobiles like SpaceX's Crew Dragon bringing people to and from the ISS. Ivanishin installed current converters throughout the lab's Russian segment while Vagner worked on more orbital plumbing as well as explored techniques to enhance Earth photography. "The module provides the living quarters that enabled permanent human habitation to begin almost 20 years ago when the Expedition 1 crew arrived at the station 2 November, 2000".

This means that all three astronauts aboard the ISS will be able to float around the main Zvezda module, the Poisk mini-research module, and their Soyuz MS-16 spacecraft.
