Subsequently, the information was confirmed at the Mission Control Center. When the smoke detector was activated, the astronaut did not hear the smell of burning and did not observe smoke. The module was checked, after which Ivanishin and the MCC specialists came to the conclusion that the signal was false. There is no question of a real threat, according to sources.
Earlier it became known about NASA's plans to place a special toilet on board the ISS, and the cost of the project is about $ 23 million. The model made with titanium is intended to replace the Russian analogue, and if its tests are successful, it will be used for flights to the surface of Mars, as well as to the Moon.
