The International Space Station ISS was tilted because of a problem encountered with the Russian module
Recently, the International Space Station (ISS) has been tilted from its usual position in orbit. The cause of this was a collision with the Soyuz MS-18 while firing. This is the unexpected incident of the Soyuz MS-18 while on a mission.

The Russian space agency, Roscosmos, said: "The entire crew is mostly normal and is not in any danger. However, this is not the first time but the second time the ISS has encountered such emergency situations. Especially the situation was beyond the control of the crew when the propulsion in the new module suddenly fired unexpectedly."

On the morning of October 15, an unexpected accident occurred when Russian cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky was conducting engine tests on the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft. This is a passenger ship, it has been docked with the ISS since April.

According to Leah Cheshier, a NASA spokesman, said: "While the period of engine testing is coming to an end, however, it is now dynamic." The propulsion continued to operate, leading to the ISS losing control of its orbital position at 4 pm on the same day. Immediately, the Russian authorities in Moscow and NASA headquarters in Houston quickly acted continuously for 30 minutes to fix the problem.

According to Roscosmos, the space station has temporarily returned to its normal position after the problem has been rectified. However, in addition to announcing the status of the ISS station, Roscosmos did not provide any further information about the incident.

Currently, communications between the spacecraft are fully connected, according to Timothy Creamer, NASA's flight director, "Russian propulsion can stop firing when it reaches its limit".

This is not the first time the Russian module has experienced problems in the air, before that in July, Russia docked the Nauka module with the space station in orbit.

However, after only a few hours, Nauka's propulsion suddenly went out of control, causing the ISS to rotate 540 degrees. In addition to endangering the crew, it also affects equipment outside the station.

This incident shows that it is necessary to take precautions and tighten safety regulations for the ISS Station, before the next docking in the future.
