    A small micrometeorite punched a 2mm hole in the Soyuz MS-09 Orbital Module attached to the International Space Station. When the leak was found, an astronaut plugged the hole with his finger until a patch made of epoxy and kapton tape was applied.
    The module that currently has the leak is the only way for the astronauts to get off the ISS if there's an emergency.

    Always weird for me to think how easy it would be to for a person up there to suddenly have a hole right through their brain or body. That's it, game over man. Nothing you can do and no way to prepare for it.

    "Astronaut plugged hole in space station with his finger."

    And here I was thinking it was something sexual.... and a bit gay.

    I bet they could invert their craft twice as good as resurrecting Ripley.
