The six crew members of the International Space Station took shelter in their Soyuz capsules on Saturday 24 March when a piece of debris was calculated to come close to the station. The debris came from the Cosmos 2251 and Iridium 33 satellite collision in 2009. The debris came within 15 kilometres of the station and once the danger had gone the crew were allowed to return inside.
