MOSCOW (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 29th July, 2021) Russian cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky aboard the International Space Station (ISS) informed the Mission Control Center near Moscow about the unplanned activation of engines of the new module Nauka, according to the crew's negotiations with the Earth, broadcast by NASA.

Earlier in the day, Nauka docked to ISS module Zvezda.

"I can confirm that the engines are still working, and we can feel it," Novitsky told the mission control center.
