Rocket surgeon

Spacewalking astronauts have ripped through thick insulation on a capsule docked to the International Space Station looking for clues about a mysterious drilled hole that caused a leak four months ago.


The capsule leak caused tension between the US and Russian space agencies. The Russian space chief Dmitry Rogozin observed that it could have been drilled during manufacturing or in orbit. The space station’s commander at the time flatly denied any wrongdoing by himself or his crew.
