Space Station Air Pressure Restored After Apparent Meteorite Hit

Moscow, Air pressure on board the International Space Station has been fully restored, Russia's space agency Roscosmos said Friday, following an apparent meteorite strike.

Air pressure is "within the prescribed parameters," Roscosmos said in a statement. "Nothing is threatening the safety or health of the crew."

A small fracture in the Russian section of the space station was believed to have been caused by a "micro-meteorite," dpa quoted Roscosmos head Dmitry Rogozin as saying.
