An Indian astronaut may travel to the International Space Station (ISS) on board a Soyuz spacecraft for a short training mission in 2022, a Russian media report said on Wednesday, citing a source in the Russian space industry.

Feustal first joined the ISS crew back in March when he was launched on a Russian Soyuz rocket.

The Soyuz MS-08 carrying Russia's Oleg Artemyev and Nasa's Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold touched down at 5.44pm Kazakh time (1144 GMT). Flight controllers at NASA Mission Control Center in Houston worked with their Russian counterparts to fix the hole with epoxy.

Power steering and braking would still work, but a stall at a fast speed could increase the risk of a crash. The problem would be fixed by means of a software upgrade that would take about 40 minutes, he said.

Rogozin, who heads the Russian space agency Roskosmos, said in an interview on state-run television that an expert commission had wrapped up its initial findings.

Rogozin said a leading theory continues to be that someone in the station or at a space facility on Earth drilled the hole on objective.

The odd tale started on August 29 with the discovery of a small hole in a Soyuz craft attached to the ISS.

India is expected to receive the first S-400 regiment two years after the signing date of the contract. India reportedly plans to deploy the missiles to its borders with China and Pakistan.

A few hours later, Roscosmos spokesman Vladimir Ustimenko clarified that Rogozin didn't mean to say Russian Federation was bailing out of the NASA-led project. Now, Russia deliberated that ISS hole was man-made.

While he was on his third mission in space, 47-year-old Artemyev and 54-year-old Arnold had previously only served on one mission each.

Three members of the Expedition 56 crew returned safely to Earth Thursday from the International Space Station, where they spent months providing hands-on support for scientific research in low-Earth orbit, working to keep the orbiting laboratory fully operational, and performing three spacewalks.
