There was a leak on the International Space Station last night. A 2mm hole in the Russian port of the ISS caused a drop of pressure throughout the station. The hole was likely caused by debris. The space station is pressurized in order to provide an atmosphere similar to ours on Earth, if it weren’t pressurized the astronauts wouldn’t live.
Because the hole was so small, they let the crew sleep for the rest of the night.
If I were part of the crew i’d be so mad.. Yeah, real nice of you to not wake me up, while you’re safe on the ground. Meanwhile, I’m in space and could die.
I don’t care if it’s only a small leak, have you seen any space movie ever?
Could you imagine being up there and there being a leak?! Turns out all was good, though.
The hole has been sealed, patched, and there is a repair plan in place.
