Roscosmos admitted: We do not know what damaged our two spacecraft

Their failure in a short space of time may signal a crisis in Moscow’s space program

Roscosmos has not yet clarified the exact reasons for the unusual situations with the Soyuz MS-22 and Progress MS-21 spacecraft, said the general director of the state corporation Yury Borisov, quoted by TASS.

He spoke during an educational marathon.

“It’s becoming a problem. These two unusual situations … happened to our ships. … We haven’t fully clarified it yet, but it’s definitely an external influence – they disrupted the thermal management system, endangered the lives of the crews” Borisov said.

On December 15, 2022, the outer heat sink loop of the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft’s thermal control system depressurized. Russian experts initially said the cause of the accident was likely a meteor impact.

On February 11 of this year coolant leaked from the thermal control system of the Progress MS-21 spacecraft.

According to independent experts, it would be extremely strange for two Russian spacecraft to be hit by micrometeorites in such a short interval, but nothing else on the ISS would be affected.
