The ISS crew announced the exact location of the damage to the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft

Thanks to the photo and video materials sent by the ISS crew, specialists from the state corporation Roscosmos managed to find the exact location of the damage to the Russian manned spacecraft Soyuz MS-22. About this RIA news said a source familiar with the situation.


The damage affected the radiator of the cooling system near the solar panel check-in assembly.

- transmits news agency source.

This allows you to carry out the necessary repairs.

Recall that on December 15, the outer skin of the Soyuz MS-22 K.E. Tsiolkovsky, which docked with the International Space Station, was damaged. In this regard, the exit of Russian cosmonauts into outer space had to be canceled.



According to the cosmonaut and executive director for manned programs of Roscosmos Sergey Krikalev, the collision of the spacecraft with a micrometeorite could have caused damage to the skin and depressurization of the cooling system. All this led to a sharp increase in temperature in the ship, however, Krikalev assured, there was no threat to the life of the astronauts.

Meanwhile, according to the state corporation, already on the third day after the incident, the temperature fluctuated between 28-30 degrees, continuing to gradually drop thanks to the efforts made by the cosmonauts and specialists from the Mission Control Center (MCC) near Moscow. Such a temperature in the Russian corporation was called a little higher than usual.

    30 degrees is certainly not fatal, in the south it happens more. The difference is only in weightlessness and limited space.
    We coped with a non-standard situation and this is good for the future.

      Now they just drive warm air into the ISS so that the ISS cooling system solves the problem. If the ship is disconnected from the ISS systems, then the situation will change dramatically.

            The inclusion of the DPO engines did not increase, and their zone from the ISS is not cooled. There are not so many maneuvers there in a couple of hours. But, as I said, you can simply replace the ship in the end - this is allowed by the agreement.

      Here's what's known
      A source in TsENKI of Roscosmos (responsible for spaceports) reports that the unwillingness of emergency ground services to promptly send a rescue ship with a repair kit to the ISS is caused by the innovations of Borisov, who headed the Roscosmos Group of Companies in July 2022. After Rogozin left, many of his decisions were canceled "in order to optimize". In particular, the Soyuz spacecraft was taken off duty, which was at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in constant readiness for launch and could be prepared for launch in case of emergency situations within a matter of hours.

      Meanwhile
      It is reported that the situation with the Soyuz being returned is so critical that the probability of a catastrophe when returning on it is estimated at 90%. At the same time, there are nine people on the ISS today.

      It will take at least a month to send a spare ship to Roskosmos, but this is the most optimistic period, in reality it can be longer.

      Whether there are enough supplies of food, water and air at the station for such a number of people is unknown. Roskosmos does not say anything intelligible about the situation, with the exception of the sacramental "everything is going according to plan."

      Draw your own conclusions.

        Well, let's start with a simple one - there have been no ships that have been in constant readiness at the cosmodrome since the Soviet era. There were ships that went through various cycles of their tests, but in any case, it took a month to launch them.

        Do you need even more precision than that?

        Imagine yes. We need more precision. Showing the exact location of the damage. And its geometry. In the meantime, some words without specification. Words that give rise to many questions.
        If it really was a meteorite impact, pictures of the damage would have made the rounds in the media by now. But instead, one talking shop. Which involuntarily gives rise to a version of a manufacturing defect.
        Did you visually determine the hole diameter of 0,8 mm? By eye? Or by the speed of the coolant ejection and the drop in its pressure in the system? And from this hole of 0,8 mm did such a fountain beat at a pressure of 2 atm?
        So, what is next? System repair is out of the question. It is problematic to both patch a hole and pump coolant into the tubes. And what to download?
        With KZhO, everything is more or less clear, so far there seem to be no problems with the residential compartment. What will happen to PAO? When landing? If the PRC failed? What are the consequences of overheating as a result of a violation of heat transfer? In short, it seems that the RK does not know anything yet and is wrinkling his forehead intensely. Can I descend on MS-22?
        If not - what to do? Send a backup drone? So there is none. MS-23 - NOT spare. He is planned. For March. Why, even a reserve spacecraft can be launched into orbit 45 days after an emergency occurs at the station. And the MS-23 passed only part of the tests before the scheduled launch.
        In general, it is still a complete ambiguity. We wait.

          Oh, so you can tell the difference between a meteoroid-pierced hole and a hole punched... by a core? laughing

          The Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft was launched into space on September 21, i.e. it has been in orbit for two months now. During this time, no leaks were recorded.

          The station is constantly perforated by various meteors. For example, from the last one - a broken Kanadarm 2:

          In short, Moscow is not Sochi. As part of the station, the ship can stay until March. This month there will be a commission that will draw up a plan for further work on the ISS for our crews.

            Previously, yes. By the nature of the edges of the hole. If it is not microscopic. Ragged edges outward clearly indicate a manufacturing defect.

            These are wishes that are far from reality.
            We open the manual of RSC Energia edited by Milovanov and Gordyaev dated 2020 - "Ensuring fault tolerance of Soyuz MS manned transport vehicles". We read: "the flight program must be carried out in case of any failure in a hardware or functionally redundant system (with the exception of failures associated with depressurization ship compartments, depressurization of hydraulic circuits of the system for ensuring the thermal regime - SOTR). It was the latter that happened on December 15th.
            Those. depressurization of the circuit of the system for ensuring the thermal regime of the Soyuz MS spacecraft is a condition for non-fulfillment (interruption) of the flight program. Moreover, according to the latest information, regardless of whether the spacecraft is part of the ISS or in autonomous flight.

            For the simple reason that there is essentially zero information from the MCC. No photo, no voice acting of the specific place of breakdown of the coolant tube. I'm talking about this right now.
            And the suppression of information may indicate, first of all, a manufacturing defect.

                  There is no "extreme" seriousness. The crew is on the ISS and continues its work. The ship can be replaced by another, and this has already been done before. Next year we have three Soyuz MS spacecraft preparing for launches.
