International Space Station leak is stable, Russia says

(CNN)The International Space Station’s cabin pressure is holding steady after crews repaired a leak on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft attached to the orbital complex, Russia’s space agency said Friday.

Roscosmos’ executive director of manned programs, Sergei Krikalyov, said that the seal was “proving to be completely airtight,” after teams isolated and plugged a hole of about two millimeters in diameter. The crew was never in danger, according to NASA.
“At night, tests were held and the pressure was monitored for a lengthy period of time. Right now, the pressure is stable and no further leaks have been detected,” Krikalyov told state-run news agency TASS.
