«Roscosmos» in the investigation of the hole in the «Soyuz MS-09» sent to NASA request for psychological health of American astronauts, but there was considered unethical, told RIA Novosti source in the Russian rocket and space industry.

«There was such a request, but the response from NASA is not sent. There he was recognized as unethical,» — said the Agency interlocutor.

In addition, according to him, the American Agency has considered that it is contrary to the requirements of the nondisclosure of personal data.

Air leaks on the ISS found a week and a half ago, on the night of August 30. The crew checked all compartments and found, according to the head of the Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, «hairline fracture» in the spacecraft «Soyuz MS-09». It was located in the living compartment, not in the descent module, so do not threaten the return of the spacecraft to the Ground.

Subsequently, two source RIA Novosti reported that the reason for the seal failure was a manufacturing defect — drilled on the Earth hole in the inner hull. While earlier it was believed that the crack formed due to the penetration of the micrometeoroid.

The thirtieth of August in the negotiations with the mission control Center told the astronauts to Earth at the location of the «cracks» that turned out to be traces of the drill, neobichnie discovered traces of glue. On the same day, Russian cosmonauts closed the hole with a special sealant.
