The International Space Station (ISS) was thrown briefly out of control on Thursday.

The dangerous situation was caused when the jet thrusters of a newly arrived Russian research module accidently started up.

NASA have said that there were seven crew members aboard at the time: two Russian cosmonauts, three Nasa astronauts, a Japanese astronaut and a European space agency astronaut from France. However, they were never in any danger.

The accident has caused NASA to postpone an un-crewed test flight to the space station.

Thursday’s mishap occured about three hours after the multipurpose Nauka module had latched onto the space station.

The module’s jets suddenly restarted, causing the entire station to pitch out of its normal flight position some 400km above the Earth.
