Always have a backup plan

Unless you're NASA...

Russia grounded its Soyuz rockets after one of the unmanned craft crashed following blast-off while carrying tonnes of cargo for the International Space Station, a space official said Thursday.

I figured that ending the shuttle with no other man-rated vehicle to take it's place would bite them on the butt; I just didn't think it would be so soon. Good thing the astronauts on the ISS have a couple of months of supplies on hand.
