The lanes started very closed in the early hours. This was repeated every ninety minutes. Four people on board have moved to Crew Dragon for safety reasons, while the other three have moved to Soyuz. In an emergency, such as a catastrophic collision, these rescue ships can quickly get home.
And the Russian space agency, Roscosmos, quoted the official space.com website, that the situation returned to normal at 3:30 pm Belgian time. Although there have been reports of some vents closing inside the space volcano. NASA has yet to publicly communicate about the incident.
It is not yet known exactly what space debris is. Experts have repeatedly warned of the (increasing) risk of collision with space debris. According to American space specialists, the test of the Russian satellite will be the basis for the scrap. Prominent Russian space journalist Anatoly Zak talks about a test with the Tselina spy satellite launched in 1982. It could have been neglected two years later.
The US State Department says it is a “dangerous” and “irresponsible” test to shut down a satellite. More than 1,500 traceable pieces of space debris have been created. CNN News heard from two officials that the test was to take place over the weekend. It is still not clear whether it was this junk that the seven people aboard the ISS, including two Russians, had to temporarily transfer in their “rescue boat”.
Anyway, the Pentagon is investigating.
