Nothing to see here….move along, move along

Spacecraft glitch shifts orbiting ISS: Russia.

The orbiting International Space Station has shifted in position after an engine glitch on a docked spacecraft which is due to bring astronauts back to Earth this week, Russia said.

The engines of the Soyuz spacecraft “switched on unscheduled which led to an insignificant change in the position of the ISS”, Russia’s space agency, Roscosmos, said in a statement on its website.

Lordy! I’m sure the three astronauts riding down in that capsule (Terry Virts, Anton Shkaplerov and Samantha Cristoforetti) tomorrow will sleep well tonight knowing that their Soyuz has a mind of its own.

Come on, Russians — get your act together!
