Buckle up, space station crew

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The crew of the International Space Station could have a rough return to Earth because their reentry capsule has the same glitch that caused problems on the last two landings, a Russian space industry source told Reuters on Friday.

Russia’s space agency would not comment on technical problems but said the Soyuz-TMA capsule was safe.

Concerns have been raised about the safety of the Soyuz because the last two reentries have not gone according to plan.
