Soyuz MS-10 was supposed to carry a pair of crew to the International space station, but there was an issue shortly after staging which forced the crew to abort. This is the first time in hundreds of space flights that a crew had to use an in flight abort system.
At this time Soyuz is the only rocket able to send astronauts to the space station and the current crew will have to return home in 2 months. If the situation isn't resolved there's a chance the ISS will be left empty for a while.
