NASA is thinking about saving SpaceX astronauts as backup after the Soyuz leak

NASA could use a SpaceX spacecraft to rescue three space station crew members, relying on a leaky Soyuz to get home, a report suggests.

The Soyuz spacecraft on the International Space Station suffered a serious coolant leak on December 15 and a decision on whether it is safe to send the crew back to Earth with it will come in January, Russia has said. If a Soyuz rescue craft is needed, it can only come in Februarytwo or three weeks before the normal changeover in March.
