Roscosmos Head Claims Anti-Russian Sentiment Affecting Cooperation With NASA

"Ruling out a manufacturing defect indicates that this is an isolated issue which does not categorically affect future production", it said.

The hole found in the hull of the Russian-made Soyuz space capsule attached to the International Space Station was discovered in August and was quickly sealed up by the ISS astronauts who intervened fast.

Rogozin said a leading theory continues to be that someone in the station or at a space facility on Earth drilled the hole on goal.

If the mission proves successful, India will join an elite group of only three countries - Russia, US and China - which have the capability to launch a manned mission to outer space.

And, now Nasa is trying to clamp down on the notion that the hole was intentional. By the end of their mission, they will have circled planet Earth 3,152 times and traveled 83.4 million miles (134 million kilometers), NASA officials said in a statement. She also said that the reason behind this hole can be explained after completing the full investigation.

The landing came with Russian and USA officials investigating the appearance of a mysterious hole in a Russian space craft docked at the orbiting station.

Feustel, Arnold and Artemyev spent 197 days in space.

The International Space Station program is tentatively planning a spacewalk for November to examine the hole from the outside.

The crew, which were part of Expedition 56, rode the Russian Soyuz MS-08/54S spacecraft back to our planet, and everything about the departure and descent appears to have gone just according to plan.

NASA said its new administrator, Jim Bridenstine, was scheduled to attend the launch and would meet Rogozin there for the first time.
