Kosmiczny śmieć uderzył w ramię robota Canadarm2, znajdującego się na Międzynarodowej Stacji Kosmicznej (ISS). Obiekt przebił ochronną osłonę termiczną, ale maszyna nadal działa.

Cosmic debris collided with the arm of a robot on the International Space Station محطة

Space debris has hit the Canadianrm2 robot arm on the International Space Station (ISS). The person broke the heat shield, but the machine continues to work.

Canadian Space Agency donatedthat during a routine inspection on May 12, A hole in the heat shield of the 60-meter-long robotic arm was observed on the International Space Station.

It is not yet known what hit Canadarm2 or when it happened, but an investigation is underway.

The hole appears to be about 5 millimeters in diameter and the damage is only a small part of the robot.

“The results of the ongoing analysis indicate that the performance of the arm remains intact,” Canadian Space Agency officials said, describing the collision as a “lucky opportunity.”

The collision shows that orbital debris is becoming more and more dangerous. Space around the Earth is slowly becoming crowded with satellites, used rocket parts, and other things. Experts point out that the problem is really serious due to people’s dependence on satellite systems, for example used in the Global Positioning System.

The US Department of Defense is currently tracking more than 27,000 pieces of space debris, including approximately 23,000 objects larger than a softball.

Debris flies into orbit at an altitude of 18,000 miles (289 68.19 kilometers) and poses a major safety threat to astronauts on the International Space Station.

The International Space Station has so far had to perform at least 26 special maneuvers to avoid collision with orbital debris.
