The US space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and its Russian counterpart Roscosmos State Corporation for Space Activities,or Roscosmos have repaired a minute pressure leak on the International Space Station, which resulted in a minor loss of cabin pressure.

“After a morning of investigations, the crew reported that the leak was isolated to a hole about two millimeters in diameter in the orbital compartment, or upper section, of the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft attached to the Rassvet module of the Russian segment of the station,” the NASA blog reads.

However, the cabin crew wasn’t in any kind of danger.

The Roscosmos has convened a commission to conduct further analysis of the possible reason behind the leak. In the wake of the repair, flight controllers in Houston are monitoring station’s cabin pressure.
