Hole discovered in leaking Russian Soyuz spacecraft

The leaking Russian Soyuz spacecraft docked with the International Space Station (ISS) has a small hole, an inspection has found.

The Soyuz’s coolant ran out on Wednesday evening (December 14) as two cosmonauts prepared to conduct an in-orbit spacewalk outside of the laboratory (which was soon cancelled). In the days since, Russia’s space agency Roskosmos has been trying to pin down the cause and aftermath of the leak, with some help from its ISS partners.
