Indian Astronaut May Pay A Short Visit to International Space Station

Indian Astronaut May Pay A Short Visit to International Space Station

"Special thanks to the crew of the 55th and 56th expeditions for their support and participation in our mission to explore outer space". NASA astronauts Drew Füstel and Ricky Arnold and Oleg Artimyev of Roskosmos landed in the southeast of Kazak town of Kazakhstan at 11.45 pm on global time.

Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin was quoted by Russian news agencies on September 23 as saying that Russia wouldn't be reduced to a junior partner in the NASA-led project to build the lunar orbital platform called the Gateway in the 2020s.

It's been over a month since we first learned of the apparently man-made hole that caused a small air leak on the International Space Station.

Roskosmos Managing Director, Sergey Kraylev, said in turn that it was not possible to exclude the possibility that a space crew member of the Soyuz-MC-09 spacecraft would be caused by a crew member in the International Space Station.

Station crew members traced the hole to the Soyuz, and quickly patched it inside with gauze and epoxy, after ground teams detected a slight loss of station pressure on August 29.

"The version that now remains is it was a deliberate act, and a second commission will determine where this occurred", Rogozin added.

He's a 'fantastic, fantastic man' - Trump stands by Kavanaugh
President Donald Trump has defended his Supreme Court nominee and questioned why Ford did not report the incident to police. Lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford and representatives of the committee came to the tentative agreement late Saturday.


"This conclusion does not necessarily mean the hole was created intentionally or with mal-intent".

NASA informs that there was a timid plan for a spacewalk in November to gather more information.

While he was on his third mission in space, 47-year-old Artemyev and 54-year-old Arnold had previously only served on one mission each.

A Russian space capsule with three men onboard has safely landed in a barren steppe in Kazakhstan after a six-month mission aboard the International Space Station.

Astronaut Andrew Feustel, who has two science degrees from Purdue University, also moonlight's as a musician and just released a music video for a song from ISS.
