Temperature change on Soyuz MS-22 poses no threat to cosmonauts' health - Roscosmos

MOSCOW. Dec 16 (Interfax) - The temperature on the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft is 30 degrees Celsius, which is an insignificant change of the temperature regime, Roscosmos said.

There is no threat to the crew of the International Space Station (ISS), it said.

"On Friday, specialists of the Moscow region's Mission Control, in collaboration with the Russian cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station, conducted a number of test of the systems of the Soyuz MS-22 manned spacecraft, including temperature measurements in the crew compartment of the spacecraft (the landing capsule and the habitability module), where the temperature was some +30 degrees Celsius," the state corporation's press service said.

"It's an insignificant change in the temperature," it said.

Roscosmos said changes in the temperature are currently not critical to the operation of the station's equipment and the comfort of its crew, including according to reports from the crew, and pose no threat to the cosmonauts' life and health.
