The press office of the Russian “Ross Cosmos” space corporation reported on Wednesday (January 20th) that the oxygen delivery system to the Russian sector of the International Space Station is operating normally.
A spokesman for the corporation said, “The oxygen delivery system has been disconnected and switched on again according to the technical operations plan implemented at the station, which allowed us to say that all the devices are operating normally.”
It is noteworthy that the Russian astronaut, Sergey Rijikov, had reported to the Space Flight Management Center at 18.18 on January 20 Moscow time about a malfunction in the “electron” system for delivering oxygen to the Russian sector of the station.
It is noteworthy that the oxygen delivery system had failed last October, forcing the Russian crew to dismantle it in order to uncover the defect and switch to using the American system temporarily. Then a spokesman for “Ross Cosmos” announced that the Russian system had been restarted. But it crashed again last December.
