MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian cosmonauts on the International Space Station (ISS) are reporting a temperature rise on the Russian Zvezda Service Module where an air leak has been spotted, Russian cosmonaut Ivan Vagner said.
The temperature is slowly increasing on Zvezda, Vagner told a specialist at the RKA Mission Control Center of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, as broadcast by NASA (US National Aeronautics and Space Administration) on Sunday. The mission control specialist said that a normal temperature should be restored on Monday morning.
A spokesperson of Russian space agency Roscosmos told Sputnik that the safety of the ISS crew is not jeopardized by the air leak.
However, according to Sergey Krikalev, executive director for manned space programs of Roscosmos, additional air might have to be delivered to the ISS if the crew fails to get rid of the leak.
