Sabotage on Soyuz alleged
An air leak on the International Space Station might have been sabotage, according to the head of Russia’s Roscosmos space agency, and an investigation is under way.
Dmitry Rogozin said the hole detected in a Russian Soyuz module docked at the ISS was caused by a drill and could have been done deliberately, either back on Earth or by someone in orbit. “There were several attempts at drilling,” Rogozin said in televised comments.
Astronauts used tape to seal the leak after it caused a small loss of pressure that was not life-threatening.
Rogozin said initial suggestions that the hole was most likely caused from outside by a tiny meteorite had been ruled out.
