the NASA announced early this Tuesday the postponement of an output in the space of two of its Astronauts outside the International Space Station (ISS) due to the risk posed by "debris". These astronauts, Thomas Marshburn and Kayla Barron, had to get out of the space laboratory later in Tuesday's day for a six-past six and a half-time exit to replace a defective radio communication antenna.

"NASA has been informed [of a risk] debris for the spatial station, has tweeted the American space agency. Due to the lack of opportunities to correctly assess the risk that this could represent for astronauts, the teams have decided to postpone the exit in the space of 30 November until more information is available. »

Debris from a Russian spatial missile test?

mid-November, Russia had destroyed one of its own satellites during a missile test, generating a cloud of debris. It had forced the seven members of the ISS crew to take refuge temporarily in their return vessels. It has not been specified if the report by NASA of the output in the Tuesday space was due to debris from the Russian Space Missile test. The Russians rejected the US charges according to which their test has endangered the spatial station.

US officials declared that they had not been informed in advance of this antisatellite missile test, only the fourth to touch a spacecraft from the ground, which generated more than 1,500 orbital debris identifiable . It was to be the first exit in the Kayla Barron space and the fifth of Thomas Marshburn. The two astronauts had arrived on the ISS on November 11 aboard Spacex's Crew Dragon Endurance Capsule with NASA's CREW-3 mission for a six-month stay.
