Dramatic Footage Shows Moment Inside Soyuz Capsule When Booster Rocket Failed

Cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and NASA astronaut Nick Hague at the pre-launch ceremony in Kazakhstan

This Hague's first flight. The space station and its crew depend heavily on missions supported by the rocket.

Two spacewalks planned for later this month were off indefinitely. Hague was supposed to be one of the spacewalkers.

Unfortunately, Hague and Ovchinin never made it that far. One of the pictures showed Hague smiling and another had him sitting next to Russia's space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin.

Relations between the USA and Russian Federation have been very tense in recent years.

The space agencies said the astronauts were in good condition after their capsule landed about 20 kilometres east of the city of Dzhezkazgan in Kazakhstan.

Even if the Soyuz spacecraft is cleared for launch before December, Hadfield said, it could end up carrying astronauts from Thursday's launch rather than the next scheduled crew. He added that space crew is trained to endure such loads.

They were set to join the crew of Alexander Gerst, the station's first-ever German commander, as well as US astronaut Serena Aunon-Chancellor and Russian cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev. Ovchinin and Hague were both traveling to the ISS to join the three astronauts now aboard - Gerst, NASA's Serena Auñón-Chancellor, and Roscosmos' Sergey Prokopyev.

NASA officials now must decide how or whether to maintain a US presence on the $100 billion orbital research laboratory as Roscosmos investigates the cause of the rocket's malfunction. That's a diplomatic way to say the Russian booster failed, forcing the crew to perform a risky launch abort.

Launched on October 11 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, the Soyuz MS-10 capsule carrying American astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin is now attempting an emergency landing following booster failure.

It had taken off, as usual, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the country's south.

Rocket Launch Failure Forces Astronaut And Cosmonaut To Make 'Ballistic Landing'
The Canadian Space Agency said Thursday that it did not know whether the failed launch would affect Saint-Jacques' launch date. To make matters worse, the three current crew members must return to Earth before the end of the year as well.

He said all manned launches will be suspended pending an investigation into the cause of the failure. He said Russian Federation will share all relevant information with the U.S. Eric Berger ofArs Technica reports that Russian sources said the failure occurred about two minutes into flight, suggesting the rocket had a problem during second stage separation, but the exact nature of the complication is unknown.

USA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin parachuted to the ground safely in their capsule after a booster on the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft failed, NASA and Russia's space agency said.

Russian Federation may indefinitely postpone its next manned Soyuz launch planned for December, state-owned RIA Novosti reported, citing an unidentified person.

Glover, the NASA astronaut at the bar, received word that the astronauts were making a "ballistic descent", a much steeper and faster return to Earth than what is ideal - but that search-and-rescue crews were in contact with the astronauts.

A USA astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut are alive after a failure during a mission to the International Space Station.

"An accident with the booster, two minutes, 45 seconds", the voice of Ovchinin could be heard saying calmly in live-streamed footage of the launch from Kazakhstan's Baikonur cosmodrome.

Russian and US space officials said that the crew is heading for an emergency landing in Kazakhstan at an unspecified time.

At this moment, there are no Soyuz spacecraft berthed at the orbiting science station.

A recording of communications between the space station and NASA stated that Hague and Ovchinin had experienced 6.7 G's - about the same as Apollo astronauts felt during re-entry, according to Air & Space magazine. The Russian space agency also sent 70 rocket engines back to production lines in 2016 to replace broken parts.
