Wow- anyone catch today’s launch failure out of Baikonur? I love how the press is liberally using words like “ballistic “ and “breakup” to spice up the story. Seems like the launch abort system worked exactly as designed and the crew were in comparitavely little danger. (Of fourse, there’s always a danger in spaceflight). The Soyuz’s record is pretty stout considering how long it’s been flying.
