Two astronauts in good condition after emergency landing

Soyuz-FG rocket booster blasts off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome carrying the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft with Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and NASA astronaut Nick Hague of the ISS Expedition 57/58 prime crew aboard to the International Space Station (IS ISS: Space rocket declares emergency after launch – astronauts parachute out | Daily Star

The rocket was transporting NASA astronaut Nick Hague and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin of Roscosmos for a six-month stay on the ISS. "But we have confidence that our Russian colleagues will figure out what's going on and we'll hopefully see Nick and Aleksei in orbit at the space station soon".

Bridenstine, who is visiting Russia and Kazakhstan for the first time since his appointment as Nasa chief this year, observed the launch from Baikonur cosmodrome with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Rogozin. Russia launches criminal probe over failed rocket launch Russian investigators said they had opened a criminal probe into the failed rocket launch that caused the two-man crew to make an emergency landing.

"If you abandon the space station, then there's no one there to fix things as they fail - and they'll eventually have a serious problem", he said.

All Soyuz flights have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. An investigation into that anomaly and how the hole was formed is also underway. Spacecraft returning from the ISS normally land in that region. But it was not the first time that a manned Soyuz rocket has been forced to activate its launch abort system. It's a predicament that would've seemed inconceivable to both Americans and Russians at the height of the space race in the 1960s and 1970s. The three astronauts still on the station will likely need to return to earth in December. Both men escaped unscathed and feel fine, Roscosmos has said. The good news is that the ISS can be kept operational by ground controllers, as Todd explained during the briefing. With Thursday's failed launch, just three people remain on the station, an American astronaut, Serena Auñón-Chancellor, the German Commander Alexander Gerst, and Russian Sergey Prokopyev. It had taken off, as usual, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the country's south.

Roscosmos' executive director Sergei Krikalyov said in comments on state television that the rocket's failure happened after parts of the first and second stage came into collision.

RUSSIAN Space Agency Roscosmos release images on Twitter showing US Nasa astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin having blood pressure and cardiac tests after an emergency landing near Kazakh city of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan, yesterday.

"We're tightening our seatbelts", Ovchinin said on the video.

The launch failure follows close on the heels of another Soyuz issue, in which a hole was discovered August 29 on the MS-09 spacecraft that delivered the most recent crew to the space station.

"I think this demonstrates how important it is. not be dependent on one system or another system. This is an inflection point", he said.

But it added that Russia's state space industry probably could not be saved "in its current form". Bridenstine told reporters he didn't expect political differences to impinge. "It has been a hard day", Bridenstine said on Thursday.
