    A Russian Soyuz rocket malfunctioned at about 164,000 feet. The American & Russian were on their way to the ISS and landed safely in Kazakhstan.

    I was watching a scene on a video online a day or two ago when this was getting set up to launch and I thought to myself, that I hope it doesn't crash, as if I had an indication something might happen...

    Thank God the 'emergency measures' worked.

    Rewind to when we were kids and who would have believed this mission would have ever taken place to begin with? I know the Apollo missions at least had emergency escape 'measures' but never got used. Statistically it was bound to happen

    I think this is the only time there was a manned rocket that exploded after launch and the crew survived.

    This is an interesting article about the Soyuz, other vehicles that can supply the ISS and its ability to operate without a crew if necessary.
    On Thursday a rocket failed. Three humans remain on the ISS. What’s next?
