Default Space Station Leak May Have Been Caused by Human Error, Russian Reports Say

A small leak detected last week in a Soyuz transport capsule
temporarily docked to the International Space Station may have been
caused by a human before the spacecraft launched, according to Russian

suggestion that an unplanned EVA be performed to cut back the insulation
on the outside of the module to allow for inspection. I'm not sure how
that would provide any useful data though.


The idea is that if they find residue of a sealant near the hole, it had
to be made on the ground.
