Russian rocket goes BOOM again – this time with a crew on it

Maybe a bit more mixed for Roscosmos. Their booster suffered a failure of some sort - but their crewed capsule safely aborted as designed.

So it depends how bad the problem is.

It's potentially very bad for the ISS though. We're going to have to scramble to keep it manned, until either Soyuz gets declared good to go, or SpaceX / Boeing are able to get off the ground.

Do China have the available capacity to help out, and would they be willing to?
