new commercial crew vehicles could serve as space station 'lifeboats'


new commercial crew spacecraft for the international space station will be able to do more than just carry astronauts to the orbiting lab: they will also serve as temporary shelters, or even fly crew home, if there is an emergency in space, according to nasa.  currently, in dangerous situations, such as when a piece of orbital debris threatens the space station, crewmembers take shelter in the russian soyuz spacecraft. and if a medical emergency were to arise that could not be handled in orbit, the crew would head back to earth in the soyuz craft. the spacex dragon and the boeing cst-100 commercial crew spacecraft are both set to start crewed flights as early as next year, and nasa is working to ensure that these new spacecraft will serve most of the russian spacecraft's protective functio
