An air leak occurred due to a small hole in the spacecraft at the International Space Station at the end of August.

According to the report, Russian Federation has offered the Indian side a chance to send an astronaut on a training mission to the ISS in 2022 and the mission will happen before or after India's own mission to send a man into space for the first time.

Feustel has called the suggestion that the crew was somehow involved "embarrassing" and NASA on Wednesday expressed doubts over the theory that the hole was the result of sabotage.

The crew completed hundreds of experiments during its 197-day expedition in space. "It has factually reached the conclusion that rules out any manufacturing defect, which is important for finding out the truth", he said.

A few hours later, Roscosmos spokesman Vladimir Ustimenko clarified that Rogozin didn't mean to say Russian Federation was bailing out of the NASA-led project.

With space exploration being one of the few remaining areas where Moscow and Washington continue to cooperate, Russian and US officials have sought to downplay any suspicions about the ISS incident.

NASA informs that there was a timid plan for a spacewalk in November to gather more information.

Although the space agency says it accepts Roscosmos' findings that the hole may have been made from the inside - and even possibly by drilling - they don't believe American astronauts worked to undermine global cooperation in space by killing everyone on board the ISS. This will be their first in-person meeting.

Another cosmonaut and astronaut are because of join the space station group this month. He has provided content for outlets such as: Aviation Week & Space Technology, Space.com, The Mars Society and Universe Today. NASA hopes to launch crews from Florida again within a yearon new Boeing and SpaceX capsules.
