Herää kysymys ovako tällaiset sobotaashit "Obamien" vai "Osamien hommia" -ja onko tuollaisten välillä lopultakaan mitään eroa!

Reiät on tehty paikkoihin, joissa ne väsymisen vaikutuksesta ennemmin tai myöhem-min aukeavat, kuten nyt tapauhtui 30.elokuuta. Vaikka kyseessä onkin pieni porukka, temppu rinnastuu kansainväliseen joukkomurhaan - kuten yhä vaan useampi läntisten johtajien muukin temppu.

Jenkit lopettivat kaiken yhteistyön - paitsi ehkä jotkut maksut, sillä firmat käyttävät avaruusasemaa mm. Maan pinnan kuvamiseen - jo Obaman aikana. Siitä ilmoitti kui-tenkin vasta Trump, tänä vuonna. Tulloin niissä piireissä oltiin varmoja, että Hillary Clintonista tulee USA:n seuraava presidentti.

MOSCOW, September 14. /TASS/. Specialists have found new traces of drilling in Russia’s Soyuz MS-09, a spacecraft docked with the International Space Station (ISS) where an air leak was earlier reported, a rocket and space industry source told TASS on Friday.


"Traces of drilling have been found not only inside the spacecraft’s living compart-ment, but also on the screen of the anti-meteorite shield that covers the spacecraft from the outside and is installed 15 millimeters away from the pressure hull," the source said.

A drop in pressure due to an air leak was detected on the orbital outpost overnight to August 30. Later, the cause was discovered to be a two-millimeter hole of the orbital compartment of the manned Soyuz MS-09 space vehicle docked to the space station. Russian cosmonauts had plugged the hole patching it up with several layers of epoxy resin and restored pressure aboard the space station.

The space industry source told TASS that before the hole was sealed, the cosmonauts conducted photo-and video surveillance of the hole with an endoscope.

"During the analysis of those images, traces of drilling were found on the anti-meteo-rite shield," the source said,adding that "the top of the drill came through the pressure hull and hit the non-gastight outer shell."

According to another industry source, the non-gastight anti-meteorite protection is installed right before the spacecraft is taken to the final assembly workshop.

"When Soyuz MS-09 has just arrived to the final assembly workshop, it was photo-graphed in details. No hole and no signs of drilling… were found. The spacecraft was drilled later, when it was fully assembled," the source said.

He added that the anti-meteorite shield was also photographed before being installed, and no traces on it were found as well.

The source suggested that the spacecraft could be damaged either during the very last stage of works or during its 90-day stay in the checkout stand, adding that it was highly unlikely that the damage occurred during the transportation to the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan or at the launch facility.

TASS has been unable to officially confirm the information, provided by the sources, at the time of the publication.

Commission’s investigation

Russia has set up a commission consisting of specialists from Roscosmos, the Ener-gia Rocket and Space Corporation and the Central Research Institute of Machine-Building (TsNIImash, Roscosmos’s major research institute) to investigate the incident.

The commission ended its investigation last week,all files were submitted to Roscos- mos. According to state corporation’s director general, Dmitry Rogozin, Roscosmos experts will study the materials "for as long as it takes," but "within reasonable limits."

On Wednesday, Rogozin held a phone conversation with NASA chief Jim Bridens-tine. The sides confirmed the need for further close interaction between Roscosmos and NASA experts in identifying and eliminating the causes of the air leak. Rogozin and Bridenstein also agreed that NASA will assist Roscosmos in the investigation.

Roscosmos chief lambasts rumors over Soyuz as ploy to subvert ISS crew

Russia’s Kommersant daily reported earlier that the Roscosmos probe was considering, among other likely causes of the damage to Soyuz, deliberate actions by US astronauts.


MOSCOW, September 12. /TASS/. The recent buzz about the incident with Russia’s Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft, which is currently docked with the International Space Station (ISS), is directed at subverting the friendly relations among the international crew on board the orbital station, Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin said.

"The recent gossip and rumors circulating about the incident at the ISS hinder the work of Roscosmos experts and are designed to subvert the friendly relations among the crew members of the space station," Rogozin commented on his Facebook account.


"All statements citing unnamed sources are inadmissible until Roscosmos special commission concludes its work," the CEO stressed.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov said earlier in the day that it was inadmissible to accuse either Russian or American ISS crewmembers of the incident since "it is a unified crew with no political disagreements whatsoever."

Russia’s Kommersant daily reported on Tuesday citing its unnamed sources that the Roscosmos probe was considering, among other likely causes of the damage to Soyuz, deliberate actions by US astronauts, who in this way wished to speed up their return home.

According to the newspaper, the astronauts might have drilled the hole because one of the crew members was unwell. Urgent evacuation of all crewmembers would allow for getting full treatment, while the compartment where the hole was found would have burned down in the atmosphere. Roscosmos said it would refrain from making comments on the issue until the special probe reported its findings.

It was reported later that the Russian spacecraft had been damaged from the inside with a power drill and the manufacturer - space rocket corporation Energia - was ordered to identify the person who might have made the hole.

ISS Expedition 56 consists of six crew members and they are NASA astronauts Commander Drew Feutsel, Flight Engineer Ricky Arnold and Flight Engineer Serena Aunon-Chancellor; Russian cosmonauts Oleg Artemyev and Sergey Prokopyev; European Space Agency (ESA) Flight Engineer Alexander Gerst.

Russian deputy prime minister dismisses rumors US astronauts damaged Soyuz

Science & Space

September 12, 14:20 UTC+3

Yuri Borisov pointed out that the International Space Station "is an integral team where there are no political disagreements and cannot be any"


IRKUTSK, September 12. /TASS/. Groundless allegations US astronauts might be responsible for causing damage to the Russian spacecraft Soyuz MS-09, attached to the ISS, are extremely dangerous and absolutely unacceptable, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said in the wake of media publications on that score.

"It is absolutely impermissible to cast a shadow either on our cosmonauts or US astronauts," he said.


"A probe is underway. As long as the investigation continues, it will be utterly wrong to pronounce any such verdicts. The final results are to be obtained first to find out the origin of the hole. It should not be ruled out that faulty workmanship is to blame," Borisov said.

"It remains a hard fact that the drop in air pressure occurred after the spacecraft has been in space for several months. The hole is very small. It is very good it was promptly identified and the necessary measures taken," Borisov said.

He pointed out that the International Space Station "is an integral team where there are no political disagreements and cannot be any."

"The investigation is still on. Labelling and witch-hunt will be short-sighted and risky, to say the least," he concluded.

Damage to Soyuz hull

The daily Kommersant on Tuesday quoted its sources as saying that the Roscosmos probe was considering, among other likely causes of the damage to Soyuz, delibe-rate actions by US astronauts, who in this way wished to speed up their return home. According to the newspaper, the astronauts might have drilled the hole because one of the crew members was unwell. Urgent evacuation of all crewmembers would allow for getting full treatment, while the compartment where the hole was found would have burned down in the atmosphere. Roscosmos said it would refrain from comment until the special probe reported its findings.


A drop in air pressure on the ISS was registered on August 30. The crew identified a two-millimeter hole. It was patched up with several layers of epoxy resin. Later it turned out that the ship had been damaged from the inside with a drill and the manu-facturer - space rocket corporation Energia - was ordered to identify the person who might have made the hole. On September 11 the chief of the Roscosmos corporation, Dmitry Rogozin,told the media the corporation did not have an impartial picture of the incident. The situation turned out far more complex than it might have been anticipated, he added.
