Russia says space station leak may be sabotage September 4, The International Space Station is one of the few areas of Russia-US cooperation that remains unaffected by the souring of diplomatic ties Russia launched checks Tuesday after its space chief said an air leak on the International Space Station last week could have been deliberate sabotage.
Space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin said the hole detected Thursday in a Russian space craft docked at the orbiting station was caused by a drill and could have been done deliberately, either back on Earth or by astronauts in space.
Astronauts used tape to seal the leak after it caused a small loss of pressure that was not life-threatening. But there is another version that we do not rule out: Asked for comment on allegations of possible sabotage, a NASA spokeswoman referred all questions to the Russian space agency which is overseeing the commission's analysis.
A Russian MP who is a former cosmonaut suggested that a psychologically disturbed astronaut could have done it to force an early return home. The hole is in a section of the Soyuz ship that will not be used to carry astronauts back to Earth. A space industry source told TASS that the spacecraft could have been damaged during testing at Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan after passing initial checks and the mistake was then hastily covered up.
Energiya will carry out checks for possible defects on all Soyuz ships and Progress unmanned ships used for cargo at its production site outside Moscow and at Baikonur, RIA Novosti reported Tuesday, citing a space industry source.
Russia's rockets used for launching spacecraft and satellites have suffered engine problems.4. I would think someone who wanted to drill the hole on earth would have been able to do it without the drill wandering like it's shown in the image.
quite an interesting story. Apr 24, · Use the laser cut holes as pilot holes to center the drill bit and start making holes! Lots. And Lots. And Lots. Change the bit.
and drill more. and more. and change again. and drill. etc. Make sure the bit you are using is the size you specified in the drawing for whatever hole you're on, and be prepared to spend some quality time with the drill press. Phase One of the drilling program will comprise 18 holes for 1,m at the SPD deposit, where there is currently a resource of million tonnes at a grade of % V 2 O 5 defined under the.
Are you drilling holes with a portable drill or are you using a drill press? If we measured enough completed potato curves. Distribution curves tell us not only how well our processes have done; they also tell us the probability of what our process will do next.
the goal of Six Sigma performance– and most of the same tools–also. I have tested the same drill-hole by both methods and found the results to agree very closely.
In one case the first tests in an old hole, by compass, did not agree very well because of casing left in the hole.
Alexander Zheleznyakov, a former space industry engineer and author, told the TASS state news agency that drilling the hole in zero gravity would be nearly impossible in that part of the spacecraft.
