I just find that awfully funny that those two events occured at the same time....................................
Doesn't hurt to question the "offical" reason for it.
In the eight years that astronauts have lived aboard the space station, it has had to shift its orbit eight times to avoid collisions with dangerous space junk.
But Mr Humphries said tonight: 'This is the first time we have had to evacuate and shelter in a Soyuz.'
In a rare move, the three crew members of the International Space Station briefly evacuated the station and took shelter in a docked Soyuz spacecraft today due to the threat of a possible collision with a piece of space junk, NASA says.
