With space-related accidents making the news recently including the loss 
of a pilot during a test flight of Virgin Galactic's VSS Enterprise, the 
safety of crews flying on space missions has been a topic of much 
discussion lately. In today's post on Drew Ex Machina, the stories 
surrounding the only two launch aborts in the 53-year history of crewed 
spaceflight, the missions best known in the West as "Soyuz 18A" and 
"Soyuz T-10A", are examined.
