The failed Soyuz rocket looked like a giant needle and thread from space
Traveling to the International Space Station is a pretty special thing that only a very select group of people will ever have the opportunity to participate in. So, when astronauts aboard the ISS are eagerly awaiting the arrival of new crew members you can bet that they're keeping a close eye on the launch from their birds-eye view in Earth's orbit.
This week's rocket launch on a Roscosmos Soyuz rocket didn't exactly go as planned. The crew was forced to abort the flight after the rocket failed and, while the capsule containing the travelers managed to drift back down to Earth in once piece, the crew of the ISS caught a glimpse of the failed mission as it fell apart.
