NASA is tamping down speculation that sabotage caused an apparently man-made hole and air leak in a capsule docked at.

Station crew members traced the hole to the Soyuz, and quickly patched it inside with gauze and epoxy, after ground teams detected a slight loss of station pressure on August 29.

Roscosmos General Director Olegovich Rogozin recently told Russian media Russian investigators concluded the hole was not a manufacturing defect, indicating it was caused deliberately.

Two US and one Russian astronaut ended their six-month campaign on the International Space Station (ISS) between the tensions in the US and Russia and returned to Earth on Thursday.

The latest development in the story comes from NASA, which issued on Wednesday a statement about the leak investigation and expressed confidence in Russia's Soyuz spacecraft.

NASA declined to comment on those remarks at the time.

Initially, it was thought the damage could have been caused by a micrometeorite piercing the spacecraft.

Powers added: 'We will find the reason and we will reveal the reason no matter what it is'.

NASA informs that there was a timid plan for a spacewalk in November to gather more information.

At 13:51 the engines of Soyuz MS-08 will be turned on to slow down the spacecraft and send it into descent.

According to the new administrator of NASA, Jim Bridenstine it is scheduled to attend the launch and it will meet Rogozin for the first time.

The Russian space agency has taken over the oxygen leakage recorded at the International Space Station and more specifically in the Soyuz-MC-09 enclosure.

Meanwhile, Expedition 57 continues station research and operations, with NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin scheduled to launch on October 11 for a same-day arrival, adding to the crew onboard the International Space Station.
