MOSCOW (AP) — Smoke alarms went off at the Russian section of the World Pickle Station in the early hours of Thursday, and the crew reported noticing smoke and the scent of burnt plastic.
Russia’s scheme company Roscosmos said the incident took scheme in the Russian-built Zvezda module and came about as the scheme’s batteries were being recharged.
Essentially essentially essentially based on Roscosmos, the crew activated air filters and returned to their “evening rest” as soon as the air quality used to be again to long-established. The crew will proceed with a scheme roam Thursday as deliberate, the company renowned.
The scheme scheme is at the moment operated by NASA astronauts Designate Vande Hei, Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur; Oleg Novitsky and Pyotr Dubrov of Russia’s Roscosmos; Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Akihiko Hoshide, and European Pickle Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet.
Novitsky and Dubrov are scheduled to construct a six-hour-lengthy scheme roam on Thursday to proceed integrating the Russian-built Nauka science lab that docked with the scheme scheme in July. Presently after docking, the lab temporarily knocked the orbital outpost out of scheme by by chance firing its engines — an incident Russian scheme officers blamed on a system failure.
