Russia Softens Edges In Space Scandal With U.S.

Illustrative Image

In 2018, a space scandal broke out between Washington and Moscow, following the joint mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

An air leak was detected in one of the Russian Soyuz capsules docked to the orbiting laboratory. There was a 2-millimeter puncture drilled near the toilet.

The unveiled details indicated that the hole was likely made by the a NASA astronaut Serena Maria Auñón-Chancellor.

  • Roscosmos immediately ruled out the version that the damage to the Soyuz-MS-09 was made on the ground. The spacecraft had successfully passed the test in a vacuum chamber before launching. The head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, stated that traces of metal dust left from drilling were found in the amenity compartment.
  • According to the traces in Soyuz, the hole was made after 7 failed attempts. It was drilled in zero gravity conditions by someone who was not familiar with the construction of the Soyuz. Thus, the Russian crew were excluded from the list of suspects. Commander of the U.S. crew Andrew Feustel was trained to fulfill the tasks of an engineer before the flight on the Russian spaceship, Richard Arnold was a second flight engineer on the Soyuz. Thus, Serena  became the main suspect.
  • Russian news agency TASS reported, referring to a high-ranking official in the Russian space industry, that Auñón-Chancellor suffered a disease that “could provoke an acute psychological crisis,” that in its turn could lead to her attempts to speed up her return on Earth.

She is supposed to commit the first space sabotage in history.

However, in two years, the investigation has led to no result. In 2019, a special commission of Roscosmos, investigating the reasons, considered the deliberate actions of American astronauts as one of the versions.

On August 15, 2021, Dmitry Rogozin claimed that Roscosmos did not accuse NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor of drilling the hole.

At the moment, no other details on the accident have been unveiled, no other versions of the events have been officially announced.

The recent claims by Rogozin only indicate that the Russians are trying to avoid any conflicts in order not to harm the international cooperation in space, one of the few fields of cooperation left between Russia and the U.S.

Americans cannot admit the failure in the system of psychological and health checking of their astronauts, while Russians do not have enough political weight and information resources to solve the situation in their favor in the public space. Thus, Moscow backs down.

It will be a difficult task to prove Serena ‘s innocence or to sweep it under the rug.  The case was highly publicized both in Russia and the U.S. The investigation cannot last forever, and “perpetrators” will be punished one day.

If aliens were not behind the sabotage…

Why dose Russia care about cooperation in space with the Zio occupied USSA? They can go wtih China now.

As the collapse of the racist supremacist global Jewish satanic slave empire dictatorship accelerates, I very much doubt there will be any USSA space program 5 years from now. I expect wide spread civil unrest, famine, massive unemployment and a replay of Zio death camps camps but this tmie murdering over 150 million plus Americans as they did in the former Soviet union with the Zio Cheka headed by Yagoda (see Ynetnews Yagoda in a google search) murdering of 66 million.

Because NASA pays Roskosmos to take astronauts up there, NASA has not sent astronauts to space for 10 years, and maybe more, all is done with the Russians. And for Russia that is money making.

” Why dose Russia care about cooperation in space with the Zio occupied USSA? ”

Because its all theater .

The Black Terror

Good choice NASA, sending a f*cking brain-damaged, mentally diseased freak into outer space. She should have been left there. In today’s degenerate US society, the apologists would say ” but she’s a woman, don’t be judgmental.” Okay, so make her the next commander of US Central Command or Africa Command. She will do really great things for the people in those regions.

A proof Russia is still trying to be equal partner to America. But you cant compare a gas bottle with a Chrysler.

GORTNOY

she looks a little kooky, she probably did do it

Russian consistently helps its ” partners ” out of any debacle . Maybe Russia is just afraid to act ?

” while Russians do not have enough political weight and information resources to solve the situation in their favor in the public space. Thus, Moscow backs down. “

Russia isn’t afraid. Dumbass.

Proven scientific fact.
Spaceships with humans on board cannot go past the van Allen belt.

Stop talking logic. The automatons around here will get confused.
