Fault affects oxygen supply to the International Space Station


The Russian module Zvezda’s oxygen supply system at the International Space Station failed on Wednesday. According to a spokesman for the Russian space agency, the repairs would be made just yesterday and the astronauts are not in danger.

In addition, the source of an air leak that has occurred since August has also been identified. The fault is also in Zvezda. To find it, the astronauts closed all the hatches in the compartment and used an ultrasonic leak detector.

In a recent statement by Russian news agency RIA Novosti, Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka said that all modules in the Russian segment need to be replaced.
