NASA, Roscosmos work together to define brief failure at International Space Station
The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Russia’s space agency Roscosmos work closely to find the cause behind a brief incident with the International Space Station (ISS) on Friday, a spokesman for NASA told TASS.
"Flight controllers are continuing to evaluate data on the station’s brief attitude change due to the thruster firing. NASA and Roscosmos are collaborating to understand the root cause," according to the NASA spokesman.
The Energia Space Rocket Corporation (part of Russia’s federal space agency Roscosmos) announced to TASS on Friday that the ISS restored its normal position after it briefly moved out of its orientation testing the engines of the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft and the crew was not in danger. The orbital outpost’s orientation was promptly restored by the staff of the ISS Russian Segment’s main flight control group, the space rocket corporation specified.
NASA’s spokesman said that control over the ISS was regained within 30 minutes following a reported incident with a test-fire of thrusters of MS-18 spacecraft, which is currently docked to the orbital outpost.
