After two American astronauts talked live to some members of the United States Bobsled Crew in Suchi Saturday, they have sent a message that they seem to be going out of orbit.
"It's like we are being pulled by some magnetic force", Astronaut Mike Hopkins told Houston. "It began very slowly and has not increased in speed a few hours after we talked to the Bobsled team."
Both astronauts and cosmonauts say they are checking and rechecking instruments but they get the same results.
Rick Mastracchio reported that it might just be the pull of some change in space but they have not had any collisions with any space junk and that it is just a steady pull.
President Obama has called Vladimir Putin and exchanged ideas on what to do. Both are hoping it's just a freak happening and the space station will soon stop.
"I hope this isn't just a ploy to take attention away from the Olympics", stated Putin, according to a White House Source. "But he called back later after he had talked to the Russians aboard the Station."
What they are considering is sending a rocket up to get the astronauts and cosmonauts out of the situation.
However, will they be able to get to them if they are moving away from the earth?
I think they are playing down the incident at the present, a source in Russia has stated. See what happens for awhile and keep the world's eyes upon the Olympics.
We'll try to keep up with this but there is nothing to report other than what we already have.
