The temperature in the Soyuz MS-22 was 50 degrees Celsius after an accident in the cooling system. It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to its own source.

“The temperature inside the Soyuz, due to the failure of the cooling system, has already risen to 50 degrees Celsius. Currently, Roscosmos specialists are trying various ways to reduce it, ”the report says.

In addition, according to another source, due to a breakdown, the ship’s instruments can fail. He emphasizes that the launch of the Soyuz MS-23, scheduled for spring, may be postponed.

However, Roskosmos issued a refutation of information about a temperature of 50 degrees. The state corporation added that the change in temperature is not critical.

It is specified that the values ​​show about 30 degrees Celsius. “This is a minor temperature change,” the statement said.

The day before, the press service of Roscosmos announced to journalists that exit of Russian cosmonauts in outer space was canceled due to a signal from one of the diagnostic systems of the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft.

As the Public News Service wrote earlier, Sergei Krikalev named a likely reason damage to the skin of the instrument-aggregate compartment of the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft.

According to him, this could have happened as a result of external influence, in particular, a micrometeorite hit the radiator.
