Die Besatzung der ISS musste wegen herumfliegender Trümmer in ihre Raumschiffe flüchten. Die USA geben Russland die Schuld: Russland habe einen Satelliten mit einer Rakete abgeschossen und dessen Trümmer bedrohen nun die Raumfahrt.
With new data from Kiwi Space Radar gathered at 1620 UTC, we confirm detection of multiple objects near expected location of Cosmos 1408. We will share supporting data as we gather it today.— LeoLabs, Inc. (@LeoLabs_Space) November 15, 2021
Some new debris objects from today's breakup (orange orbit) visualized relative to ISS (blue orbit). Objects in white denote largest pieces of Cosmos 1408 tracked by LeoLabs. (Dots not to scale.) Debris ranges in altitude from 440 to 520km. pic.twitter.com/4ElV9KrK4P— LeoLabs, Inc. (@LeoLabs_Space) November 16, 2021
The @Space_Station crew is routinely performing operations according to the flight program.— РОСКОСМОС (@roscosmos) November 15, 2021
The orbit of the object, which forced the crew today to move into spacecraft according to standard procedures, has moved away from the ISS orbit.

ISS muss zweimal flüchten
Debris generated by the dangerous Russian ASAT test caused ISS astronauts and cosmonauts to undertake emergency procedures for safety.— Bill Nelson (@SenBillNelson) November 15, 2021
It's unthinkable that Russia would endanger not only intl partner astronauts on the ISS but also their own cosmonauts. https://t.co/8VKJxon9mW
Here is the orbit of ISS (blue) compared to that of the Ikar No. 39L satellite (cover name Kosmos-1408) (magenta) and the part of the orbit where the crew have been warned of possible collisions with a debris field (red). This shows Kosmos-1408 is a plausible candidate pic.twitter.com/oGJtQxWxkV— Jonathan McDowell (@planet4589) November 15, 2021
