A NASA astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut had to make an emergency landing on Earth after the Russian Soyuz rocket carrying them to the International Space Station experienced a failure during launch Thursday morning. Russia says they will stop sending people to space until they find out what went wrong. KCBS Anchors Margie Shafer and Jeff Bell spoke with CBS News Space Consultant Bill Harwood, who says the Soyuz missions are the only way for NASA to get astronauts to and from the International Space Station at this time.
