ISS partners look into causes of energy problems - TsNIIMash CEO
MOSCOW. Dec 2 (Interfax-AVN) - A solar panel of the International Space Station (ISS) has been apparently damaged by a micro meteorite, General Director of the Central Research Institute of Machine-Building (TsNIIMash) Gennady Raikunov has told Interfax-AVN.
"The cooling pipeline of a solar panel was apparently punctured. But nobody saw what punctured it or how. Therefore the particles were apparently small. Now all this situation is being studied. A set of measures to remove the problem is being developed," Raikunov told Interfax-AVN on Sunday.
