After the docking of the Nauka module with the International Space Station (ISS) its chief designer, Alexander Kuznetsov, was taken to the hospital with a suspected stroke. This was announced on Friday, August 13, according to a source in the rocket and space industry.

"On August 2, a few days after the completion of the eight — day flight of the Nauka module and its docking with the ISS, Alexander Kuznetsov was taken to the hospital with a suspected stroke. The enormous tension in the work of the members of the state commission, under the control of which the module was finalized and launched, was affected," the source told RIA Novosti.

It is reported that at the moment the designer is on the mend — he was discharged from the hospital.

In addition, it is noted that Kuznetsov, along with his colleagues, practically did not leave the room during the eight days of the module's flight.

On July 30, the Nauka module, intended for the implementation of the Russian program of scientific and applied research and experiments, docked to the ISS. Due to the unexpected activation of the engines on the Nauka module, the ISS turned 45 degrees.

Roscosmos explained that the operation of the engines was connected with the process of transferring the module from flight mode to the "docked with the ISS"mode.

The head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, said that the flight of the Nauka module to the ISS caused the developer's worries, all the comments that arose will be analyzed by the state commission.

The module is intended for the implementation of the Russian program of scientific and applied research and experiments. In April, Roscosmos said that thanks to the Nauka module, it will be possible to conduct experiments in outer space without leaving the station, and an additional cabin for an astronaut will also appear.
