Magnus checks out a Russian Sokol space suit in Moscow during training. In the unlikely event that the last shuttle crew had been stranded at the space station, they would have come home one at a time, in Russian Soyuz vehicles, over the course of a year. Based on a complex set of considerations, NASA decided ahead of time that Walheim would come home first, followed by Ferguson, Magnus, and finally Hurley.
