A Russian inquiry report has revealed that a faulty control cable exposed the Expedition 15 crew and Malaysia's first space traveller to a rough return journey from the International Space Station (ISS) .
The Soyuz capsule carrying Russians cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov, and Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor, of Malaysia, re-entered the Earths atmosphere at a steeper-than-usual trajectory; this deceleration subjected the crew to 8.5 G-forces instead of the usual 4G in the intended ballistic descent.
The craft touched down on the Kazakh steppes at 10:39 GMT, Oct 21, 2007, after undocking from the ISS.

Pigs in Space
Is there a more perfect symbol of the excesses of global capitalism than Charles Simonyi's 13-day joyride into outer space? Simonyi, a Hungarian-American software programmer who made his fortune at Xerox and Microsoft before launching his own start-up, paid $20 million to be escorted to the Kazakh steppes, packed into a Russian Soyuz rocket and blasted towards the international space station. En route, he'll enjoy a meal of roasted quail, duck breast confit with capers, shredded chicken parmentier and rice pudding with candied fruit -- all carefully selected by his girlfriend, Martha Stewart. (Martha, whatever happened to astronaut ice cream and Tang?) No word yet on the threadcount of his sheets or if there's 24-hour concierge service in orbit.
