Russia knows what caused mystery ISS hole

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"The tiny hole aboard the International Space Station (ISS) that caused so much drama in August of last year is still producing controversy, over a year later. According to new reports, Russia now knows the source of the hole, but it doesn't look like NASA has been informed."

The hole was to small  to pose any danger to the ISS... It could have been drilled on Earth, or later in space, they dont know.

To be continued I guess.

Wow. Makes you wonder if whoever drilled it was trying to cause a space disaster of some sort. Terrible thought.

Well, if Russia did it, they’re obviously not going to admit it. Putin is a piece of work, as is the Russian administration.

Remember that little Russian missile which downed a passenger aircraft and killed many innocents?

Will be interesting to see international response.

Well an Ukrainian missile downed Siberia Airlines Flight 1812 in 2001 and the US downed Iran Air Flight 655 in 1980.

Flying in the middle of a conflict or above a military exercise is a wish to get downed...

Don't forget MH17 which killed 300 from a russian surface-to-air missile. That is still a mystery. They just placed the blame on some random people. It was a large plane & from what I read their were some important researchers onboard. Sad actually

I don't forget it... it's just people forget all the others...

For the mh17, They were Ukrainian Buk missiles Flying everywhere, old Russians one left in east Ukraine flying everywhere used by the rebel... Fighters bombers bombing and getting shooting at, fighters intercepting...war is the cause and culprit.

L.A.T.1961

A very odd event to happen in a highly regulated place. No actions are taken in space unless simulations are done and astronauts trained to do the task. The eventual outcome of letting atmosphere out of the ISS would be to make it uninhabitable and the crew would have to evacuate and return to earth.

Who would this benefit?  

The only way back to the station is via a Russian rocket, the US would have had no launch vehicle available to try and reoccupy without Russian help, with all the crew off the station it would be easy for cosmonauts to go back, repair the leak, and claim the ISS for Russia.   :whistle: ;)

The hole was not enough to cause a disaster and was on a component discarded on reentry... I don't thing it was a bloodthirsty sabotage. Beside pure stupidity, it could be Russia wanting to force the US buy a new module to replace the damaged one for safety?
