Cracks found in International Space Station’s oldest module Zarya

Moscow : Cosmonauts have found cracks in the oldest module of the International Space Station (ISS), First Deputy General Designer at Russian Rocket and Space Corporation Energia Vladimir Soloviev said on Sunday.

A small air leak was first detected at the ISS in September 2019. The crew have since identified and sealed two cracks but air continues to leak, which, nonetheless, poses no threat to those on board the space station, according to Russia’s space agency Roscosmos.
