Russia’s space agency says its multipurpose Nauka module attached to the International Space Station has suffered a leak of a backup cooling system used to regulate onboard temperatures for astronauts.
The crew and the station “are not in danger” as astronauts assess the leak, the Russian space agency Roscosmos said in a statement posted on Telegram.
It’s the latest such leak the Russian crew have had to deal with in space recently, following one that sprang on a Soyuz crew capsule late last year, forcing the spacecraft’s replacement and a delayed trip home for its crew.
A Russian Progress cargo spacecraft leaked coolant months later.
NASA, which manages the ISS with Russia, did not immediately return a request for comment.
