ISS crew shelters in rescue capsule during collision threat

Latest update : 2009-03-12

As space debris threatened to collide with the International Space Station, the crew on board found refuge in the Soyuz space capsule. The three members are now back into the station, safe and sound.

AFP - The crew of the International Space Station rode out a threat of collision with a debris cloud Thursday, taking refuge in the Soyuz space capsule until it passed, NASA said.
  
"The debris threat to the International Space Station has passed," NASA said in a statement.
  
The scare arose when the crew learned too late to take evasive action that the space station was approaching a debris cloud, exposing it to a threat of a potentially catastrophic collision.
