When a tiny hole, leaking oxygen, was found in the side of a Soyuz module docked to the ISS recently, there was talk of possible sabotage, but Nasa has played this down.
The director of Russia's Roscosmos space agency, Dimitri Rogozin, ruled out a manufacturing cause for the defect. Nasa says that this need not imply that the hole was deliberately intended and with malicious intent, as some of the media had implied. The hole shows signs of the drill wandering, causing local scouring, before it penetrated the metal wall.
Roscosmos and Nasa have both opened independent investigations into the 2mm diameter hole that was detected in the exterior wall of the space module. The five international astronauts on board the ISS were never in any danger, and the leak has since been patched with tape and sealant.

Thanks to Stella, with 6 on board there are now enough people to make a game of Cosmonaut Cluedo. My money's on Oleg with the light sabre. Blob
