New Delhi: The US space agency NASA claims that the International Space Station, the home of the astronauts in space, remained out of their control for about 45 minutes on Thursday (July 29). In fact, the Russian module backfired, causing the glitch. However, the team in NASA's control room, with the help of control thrusters, brought the space station to its orbit, which averted a major accident.

What's the matter?

According to the information, Russia's research module was deployed a few hours ago on Thursday on the International Space Station (ISS) in space. It is being told that it suddenly backfired, causing the ISS to withdraw from its orbit and remain out of NASA's control for about 45 minutes.

At that time there were seven crew members in the space station, they are currently safe.

These include two Russians, three Americans, one Japanese and one French astronaut. As soon as the information about the matter was received, there was a stir in NASA.

The flight team in the space agency's control room assisted the station with the help of control thrusters.

Investigations have revealed that a technical fault in the Russian laboratory module Nauka backfired. In fact, its jet thrusters started running automatically, due to which the International Space Station was out of control of the US space agency NASA.

It is being told that the Boeing CST-100 Starliner capsule was to be launched by NASA shortly after the time when this incident happened. This capsule was also being sent to connect with the International Space Station, but the launch was stopped after the accident. Now the launch of this capsule has been fixed on August 3.
