This time, the astronauts did not hide in the ships, but carried out work at the station in the usual mode.
The ISS passed near the debris field of space debris for the third time in a day without receiving any damage. This was announced by a NASA specialist in negotiations with astronauts at the station.
“The debris flew by, the pressure in all compartments is normal,” NASA told the astronauts.
Earlier, Roscosmos reported that the International Space Station will get closer to space debris in the near future. This information came from the Mission Control Center in Houston. As specified in Roscosmos, according to the on-board instructions, “in the event of a rendezvous of the ISS with a potentially dangerous object, the crew should be in the ship at the time of rendezvous.”
During the first two rendezvous with the wreckage, Russian cosmonauts Anton Shkaplerov and Pyotr Dubrov, as well as American astronaut Mark Vande Hei transferred to Soyuz MS-19, American astronauts Raja Chari, Tom Marshburn and Kayla Barron, as well as German astronaut Matthias Maurer, boarded Crew Dragon.
For the third time, the astronauts did not hide, but carried out work at the station in the usual mode.
