Relief is on the way for three astronauts who currently depend on a leaky spacecraft docked with the International Space Station.

A replacement Russian Soyuz spacecraft, called MS-23, is bound for the International Space Station  (ISS) to be the new ride home for cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitry Petelin and NASA astronaut Frank Rubio.
