A crashed Russian satellite forces International Space Station astronauts to take shelter in a stricken Starliner capsule

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) were forced to take shelter inside the docked Starliner spacecraft after an old Russian satellite crashed in orbit, sending potentially dangerous debris around Earth.

Nine ISS crew members – including Butch Wilmore and Sonny Williams stuck in the Boeing Starliner – took shelter for about an hour last night (June 27) shortly after 9pm EDT (0100 GMT).
