Rocket Launch Failure Forces Astronaut And Cosmonaut To Make 'Ballistic Landing'

Soyuz MS-10 Launch Fails Due to Booster Issue Seeing Astronauts Returned to Earth

A Soyuz rocket carrying a NASA astronaut and Russian cosmonaut made an emergency landing Thursday back on Earth after an issue with a booster, NASA said.

With the failure of this launch, there are far-reaching consequences for the world's human space programs, and for those astronauts and cosmonauts now on board 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. Dzhezkazgan is about 280 miles northeast of Baikonur.

What happens next: NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted a statement in which he confirmed that the crew was safe and that NASA was monitoring the situation carefully. Search and rescue teams were immediately scrambled to recover the crew and paratroopers were dropped from a plane to reach the site and help the rescue effort.

It was the first serious launch problem experienced by a manned Soyuz space mission since 1983 when a fire broke out at the base of the booster rocket while the crew was preparing for lift-off. Hague and Ovchinin were set to be just the second two-man crew to travel to the space station in recent years.

Nasa has been paying for seats on Soyuz rockets to ferry its astronauts to the International Space Station since the Space Shuttle programme ended in 2011.

Family members wore custom-made "Team Hague" jackets, with patches sewn on representing NASA, the International Space Station, and the official mission that took place Thursday.

The flight was carrying NASA's Nick Hague and Russia's Alexey Ovchinin.

In August, however, the detection of a minute pressure leak on the International Space Station became the subject of intense media speculation in Russian Federation.

They later clarified that the issue caused the boosters to switch off.

The failure is a setback for the Russian space programme and the latest in a string of mishaps.

Russian Federation has set up a state commission to investigate the Soyuz booster rocket failure. To make matters worse, the three current crew members must return to Earth before the end of the year as well.

The Roscosmos Space Agency says it is forming a state commission to investigate the aborted launch. "A thorough investigation into the cause of the incident will be conducted".

The Canadian Space Agency said Thursday that it did not know whether the failed launch would affect Saint-Jacques' launch date. Despite its age, the Soyuz platform has been an extremely reliable mode of transportation to space.

Rogozin was flying to the scene of the emergency landing, the space agency said.
