Hole spotted in leaky Russian Soyuz spacecraft

The leaky Russian Soyuz spacecraft docked to the International Space Station (ISS) has a small hole in it, an inspection has found.

The Soyuz’s coolant leaked away on Wednesday night (Dec. 14), as two cosmonauts were getting ready to perform a spacewalk outside the orbiting lab (which was soon canceled). In the days since, Russia’s space agency Roscosmos has been trying to nail down the cause and consequences of the leak, with some help from its ISS partners.
