"We are looking forward to a calmer day tomorrow."
Their crew, Dragon Crow and Soyuz, have taken refuge. Unexpected dump. p>
This was not a pre-planned collision avoidance maneuver in low Earth orbit, where the station uses the aircraft's thrust to move away. Instead, the situation required the astronauts to turn quickly. p>
If a collision occurs during communication, the two spacecraft can separate from the space station and emergency return to Earth. In the end, this wasn't necessary, and the astronauts reappeared on the space station late Monday. However, while the crew at the station prepared for their sleep schedule, mission control Houston required them to keep any number of the space station's shutters currently closed in the event of an unexpected collision during subsequent orbits. A similar "space war" is likely in the near future, and we look forward to a calmer tomorrow, said NASA astronaut Mark Wendy Hee from the space station. Last call from Mission Control on Monday. The US Department of Defense issued the following statement Monday about the test: "US Space Command is aware of an outdoor waste generation event. We are actively working to describe 'We are a landfill and we will continue to make sure that everything happens.'" The countries of the astronauts own this information. It is necessary to maneuver the satellites in the event of a collision. In the United States, there has been no official confirmation of the details of an experiment. However, satellite and orbit dynamics experts have compiled the most likely scenario based on publicly available data and observations. Brian Wyden, of the Safe World Foundation, summarized the results here. Universe In the north of the country.Then the rocket hit an old satellite called Cosmos 1408. The satellite was launched in 1982, it slowly lost its altitude and was just over 450 km above the earth's surface.
It is a large satellite of its mass.The Command said The US space agency, which weighed about 2,000 kilograms as of Monday afternoon, said it was tracking more than a thousand new pieces of debris.Although the satellite is higher than the International Space Station, which is located about 400 kilometers above the surface, the kinetic effect It emits a large cloud of debris.Satellite expert Jonathan McDowell believes that Kayhan 1408 is a possible candidate for the event remaining on the space station.
What seems clear is that this story is just beginning.NASA has not officially responded , but there is no doubt that senior officials are upset Another low-Earth orbit cloud threatens the valuable International Space Station and other assets. The involvement of Russia - after all, one of the space station's main partners - should have been doubly disconcerting. p>
It is also difficult to understand why Russia deliberately destroyed a satellite that could threaten the station. It's alive now and big money has been invested. So far, the Russian space company Roscosmos has issued the only statement resembling what the former Iraqi intelligence minister said: "The orbit of the object that forced the crew today to go to the spacecraft according to standard procedures. Move away from the circle of the International Space Station. The station is in the green." p>
