That hole in the International Space Station was caused by a drill, not a meteorite, and the search is on for the culprit


Last week, astronauts aboard the International Space Station woke to an alarm warning them of a pretty serious situation. The space station was losing pressure, which means a leak had formed somewhere on the spacecraft. With a finite amount of breathable air, the race was on to find the location of the leak and do something to fix it.

It wasn’t long before a tiny hole was discovered in the Russian-built Soyuz spacecraft docked to the space station. The tiny opening was thought to be the result of damage from a micrometeorite, which isn’t unheard of, and the crew quickly came up with a plan to repair it. Now, days later, Russian space agency Roscosmos says the hole wasn’t made by Mother Nature, but by a person with a drill, and tensions are high.

So it was not a micrometeorite that caused the hole. Apparently it was sabotage that caused it and the weapon was a drill. The Russians are leading the investigation and they are speculating it either occurred by a person on the ISS or by a person on the ground at one of the Russian facilities.

The hole was found in the Soyuz capsule. Not sure if this was to occur while docked with the ISS or if it were designed to fail upon reentry.

Either way something weird is going on.

Weirrrrrrd!

Why would anyone do that?

Do we know if the hole was made from the inside or outside?
