. RSC Energia has implemented video surveillance technologies at all stages of production of spacecraft "Soyuz" After the situation with the discovery in the living compartment of the "Union MS-09" hole from the drill, said Last news a source in the rocket and space industry.
according to his statement, the Internal Commission of " Energy ", which conducted a trial before, could not be available in the archives of videos to set the time of drilling the hole in the living compartment in production. In the books of account of the actions of the officers also there were no marks of drilling, from which he concluded that the Hole drilled is not at the facility. However, as said the head of the Department, to be safe and to eliminate the possibility of such action at all stages of Assembly of the ship, it was decided to install additional video surveillance systems.
After the accident rocket "Soyuz-FG" eleven Oct decided to install additional video cameras at Baikonur in the Assembly and testing building where the rockets are assembled. Such a measure of supervision imposed for the bent During Assembly of the rocket sensor of one of the side blocks on the medium. The Commission did not announce which specific stage of the Assembly was damaged the sensor.
before the head of the Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, said that the cause of the hole in the living compartment of the "Union MS-09" will be well established and communicated to the leadership of Russia and America in the coming weeks.
The thirtieth of August, the ISS found an air leak. The pressure drop was negligible, for this reason, it's about the crew said only in the morning.

By the evening of the same day the astronauts closed the Hole repair composition " Permitall ".
Internal Commission RSC "Energia" was not able to find the cause in the processing chain on Earth, for this reason, in mid-September, Russia's Roscosmos has formed a special Commission. In addition, the investigation took up law enforcement. Russian cosmonauts Sergey Prokopiev, and Oleg Kononenko eleven Dec went out into space to take Samples of materials from the surface of the orbital module of a Soyuz, they had a knife and snips to cut open the hull of a ship. Samples brought back to Earth and handed over to the investigators.
