Russian Federation says that hole in Soyuz was drilled from inside

Russia says that hole in Soyuz was drilled from inside Cosmonaut Says ISS Hole Was Drilled From the Inside

It's been four months since crew first discovered the hole in the Russian Soyuz spacecraft attached to the orbiting lab, but just how it got there remains a mystery.

Cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev was one of two members of the ISS crew who went on a spacewalk a few weeks ago to investigate the hole from the outside.

The Russian space agency's chief, Dmitri Rogozin stated in September, shortly after the event occurred, that, according to his information, the hole could've been drilled on objective into the Soyuz module, either on the ground, before launch, or in orbit by one of the ISS crew members. Russian law enforcement agencies are looking into the cause of the mysterious hole and why it would spontaneously appear on the Soyuz rocket.

The hole in the Russian Soyuz spacecraft attached to the station was spotted on August 30.

The hole was discovered when a loss in pressure was noticed aboard the station.

Just days prior to their return to Earth, the cosmonauts endured a grueling spacewalk that lasted nearly eight hours to investigate the hole, using knives and shears to carve into the side of the ISS.

Prokopyev said at a news conference the cavity started from the capsule's interior and 'it's up to the investigative organs to judge when that hole was made'. The landing of the capsule marked the end of an exciting stint aboard the ISS for NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor, German astronaut Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency and Russian cosmonaut Sergey Prokopyev. The crew was then able to quickly locate the hole and seal it using epoxy and glue. Pablo De Leon, professor in extravehicular activities and space suit design at the Department of Space Studies of the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks, told Gizmodo in September that microgravity would have made it exceedingly hard to drill such a hole in space. Rogozin wasn't directly blaming crew members, however, his comment might have stirred up some tension between NASA and Roscosmos. On the other hand, Prokopyev said that we are constantly working on further investigation to determine when, who and exactly how the hole was made.
