Περιπλανώμενα διαστημικά σκουπίδια απείλησαν τον Διαστημικό Σταθμό

Ο Διεθνής Διαστημικός Σταθμός (ISS) απειλήθηκε από περιπλανώμενα διαστημικά σκουπίδια την περασμένη εβδομάδα, αλλά το Αυτοματοποιημένο Όχημα Μεταφοράς (ATV) «Ζορζ Λεμέτρ» της ESA, το οποίο βρισκόταν συνδεμένο στον σταθμό, έσωσε την κατάσταση πυροδοτώντας τους προωθητήρες του και ωθώντας έτσι τον ISS και τους έξι επιβάτες του έξω από την πορεία των επικίνδυνων συντριμμιών.
