Leaky Soyuz checks thrusters at ISS, US spacewalk delayed

A leaky Soyuz capsule on the Worldwide Area Station test-fired its thrusters on Friday (Dec. 16) as Russian engineers investigated why it suffered an uncontrolled coolant spill this week.

The Russian-built Soyuz spacecraft, referred to as Soyuz MS-22, sprang a coolant leak Wednesday evening (Dec. 14) as two cosmonauts ready to take a spacewalk exterior the station. Russia’s house company Roscosmos canceled that spacewalk and postponed one other indefinitely because it investigates the reason for the coolant leak, which sprayed coolant particles into house from an exterior line on the capsule. On Friday, NASA additionally delayed a deliberate U.S. spacewalk to Dec. 21, a two-day slip, because the Soyuz work continues.
