Air pressure on the International Space Station has been restored to correct levels after a leak was repaired. Because it was not deemed life-threatening, the decision was made to let the crew sleep. Flight controllers determined there was no immediate danger to the crew overnight.
Mission flight control officials are now closely monitoring the space station's system for additional warning signs.
"Gorgeous now Alex has obtained his finger on that hole and I contain no longer deem that is the first-rate clear up for it", NASA's mission control reported over a dwell feed with the ISS.
A tiny leak detected on the Space Station is now venting air into space, but NASA assures that the crew is safe and repairs are underway.
The leak was assessed as a non-emergency and the astronauts were informed upon waking up Thursday morning. Earlier this week, a small hole on the Russian side of the International Space Station (ISS) sprung a leak. According to Sputnik News, the breach was "believed to be caused by a micrometeoroid", a tiny rock fragment that hit the ISS at high velocity.
NASA says Soyuz commander Sergey Prokopyev used epoxy on a gauze wipe to plug the hole, while ground controllers used the reserves in the Progress 70 cargo ship to increase the amount of oxygen in the station.
The space agency told its astronauts "no further action was contemplated for the remainder of the day".
All members of the space station crew arrive and depart on Soyuz capsules.
