"Until you've finished all of your potential plans, you really won't have to worry."
Flight controllers at NASA and Roscosmos succeeded in preventing disaster on Friday after a large Russian spacecraft landed at the International Space Station and began a disaster. It "unintentionally" shoots its drivers. p>
Another concern of the G forces is the structure of the station. The various components of a large space station are assembled in a microgravity and designed to operate at zero temperature. Therefore, even minor stresses on the car can cause small cracks or other problems in the station chassis.
Read more Why would Russia launch a new unit at the space station if it towed it? For all these reasons, flight controllers at the space station in Houston and Moscow moved quickly after the station began moving quickly. At 11:42 am, the position control was completely dismantled and the engines of the space station service module were launched. This was followed by the delivery of a Russian Progress car attached to the station, and it began shooting at its drivers. This cord compensates for the driver's activity of the Nauka unit, which eventually stopped after running out of fuel. The situation was restored to 12:29 p.m. Thursday. It was built for an hour on Earth and in space.
"He saw!" After the shift, Houston's director of flights, Zebulon Scoville, tweeted during space station activities Thursday. "This. It was. It was. It was. It was today."
Late Thursday afternoon, when NASA officials held a conference call to brief reporters, the situation appeared to be just right. However, officials refused to say whether the mission's monitoring condition was serious before the station returned to normal. "Until you've finished all of your potential plans, you really don't have to worry," said Joel Montalbano, NASA space station program manager. "And we didn't do that today."
A team of NASA engineers is now studying the impact of Thursday's loss of control on the station's structure, Montalbano said. Meanwhile, Russian engineers were assessing the condition of the Nauka unit. Both groups must complete initial assessments by the end of Friday.
For NASA, this has meant a delay in the launch of the Starliner spacecraft scheduled for Friday. The long-running mission comes 19 months after the initial test flight crashed in December 2019 due to software issues. Because Starliner was unable to mount the space station on this first test flight, Boeing agreed to perform a second StarLier test mission before the crew could fly. NASA launches Starliner earlier Tuesday at 1:20 p.m. EDT from Florida (17:20 UTC) with an Atlas V rocket. If the spacecraft launches next Tuesday and all goes well, Starliner will land Next Wednesday with the space station. The Zoom/Russia Nauka module is attached to the International Space Station.

Meanwhile, the Russians will continue to work to integrate Navka with the space station. This is a great unit that includes crew seats, airlocks for science experiments, and more. With a mass of about 24 tons, about 20 percent of the station's largest Russian unit, the Zvezda service unit is even larger.
Nauka has a long and glorious history. It was launched eight days ago after a delay of more than a decade due to lack of funding and technical issues. Shortly after reaching orbit, Russia had a problem with Navka's main propulsion system and communication with the space station was delayed. Navuka sided after using the reserve drivers to increase altitude and reach the station. It's unclear what role the payment system played in Thursday's problems soon after launch. p>
