If a crew member were stranded on space station, due to spin, would he be rescuable? For example if an extended part bent or broke, putting the ship into a spin or tumble. If it were a one axis spin, perhaps a large mass, attached at a distance would change moment of inertia sufficient to reduce the angular velocity, so that gyroscopes could recover. Thus if the rescue shuttle had a very long arm or portable attachment, it could rotate with space station transiently at a distance, until stability allows for automatic Russian or American docking. For a tumble, such procedure would seem repeatable for all 3 axes.
