Seems the Nauka accident was a little more serious than what was first reported. Rather than a 45 degree tilt, the ISS “spun one-and-a-half revolutions – about 540 degrees – before coming to a stop upside down. The space station then did a 180-degree forward flip to get back to its original orientation,” according to the official report. I guess it wasn’t a wild ride, but it must have been plenty disconcerting. I hope they pulled the fuel lines on the Nauka module as a precaution. Good luck to the Statliner launch and docking.
