i still say someone tried place a screw too hold down the Thermal Cover/Pad
and place some black substance ( like glue ) on the bulkhead too hold down the cover or Padding ..

What black substance are you talking about, there was none of that there.



Say Again????


That’s after the epoxy patch job done on station.

Doing it in zero gravity is probably more difficult than you think.

I can't, as I don't know what's your problem with the image.

Meanwhile, a Russian cosmonaut posted a video on Twitter talking about the case and showing the repair. It may help getting an idea of the location of the hole.

Who cares what it looks like haven’tthe patch oversized on the inside helps with sealing as the pressure will want to jam in the patch better keep in mind the leak was being help at bay by kapton tape when they first found it and put that as a temporary measure.

NASA Astronauts to Perform a Spacewalk in November to Investigate ISS Hole

7 October 2018, 10:35 GMT

The investigation into who or what is responsible for the hole in the Soyuz MS-09 capsule, that in turn caused a small oxygen leak on the International Space Station in early September continues, but NASA seems to be growing increasingly irritated with the Russian accusations.

Soon after the hole was discovered, Dmitry Rogozin, head of Russian space agency Roscosmos, hinted to the fact that the hole was not caused by a micrometeorite or debris impact, but was made from the inside with a drill.

The official did not directly accuse the Americans of sabotage, but Russia media like Kommersant claimed the hole was drilled on purpose by an American astronaut so that a sick colleague could get a ride home faster.

There are no official updates on the subject from the Russian side yet, but NASA issued last week a statement saying that even if the hole is not a manufacturing defect, this “does not necessarily mean the hole was created intentionally or with mal-intent.”


To prove their point, the Americans announced they are planning a spacewalk in November to gather more information.


The heads of NASA and Roscosmos, Jim Bridenstine and Dmitry Rogozin, are scheduled to meet at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on or around October 10, before the launch of the MS-10 spacecraft carrying American Astronaut Nick Hague and Russian Cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin to the ISS.


Now Nasa will get a look at the exterior of the Soyuz capsule before the Russians get their hands on it and control the narrative .

I can’t wait .

Will be interesting especially since the Russians are back to claiming it couldn’t be a manufacturing issue...
