ISS Hit by Small “Bullet” So Obviously Chris Hadfield Tweets About It

hole in array

We don’t have very many details at the moment, but International Space Station Commander and Canadian superhero Chris Hadfield just tweeted this image from space. It shows a small hole in the ISS solar array from what Hadfield called “a small stone.”  He said he was glad it missed the hull. For the record, we’re glad it missed the hull too.

Here’s Hadfield’s tweet:

While it’s probably not great that there’s now a small hole in the solar array of the space station, it’s much better that there’s not a small hole in the hull of the space station.

So in case anyone was wondering whether we still need a better plan for dealing with space debris…I mean, it seems like probably yes, right?
