ISS crew take to escape capsules in space

6 posts in this topic

The crew of the International Space Station (ISS) briefly took refuge in escape capsules as a piece of space junk drifted nearby.

The debris - a discarded piece of Russian rocket - was detected on Friday when it was too late to move the ISS.

Nasa said the debris was barely close enough to be a threat but that precautionary measures had to be taken.

It is the third time in 12 years that the ISS has faced a possible collision with space junk.

It would be nice if we could find a way to clean up all that junk up there. Glad nothing serious happened to them this time, but eventually this kind of scare is bound to have a less than happy ending. :(

We love space junk. It's pretty when it comes streaking back down.

I think we've polluted space enough over the years so far. I think NASA should inform us more on what they're doing.
