Soyuz MS-10: Russian spacecraft makes emergency landing on Earth

11 Octobre, 2018, 23:02 | Auteur: Therese Cote

While Russian rockets had earned a stellar reputation for their reliability in the past, a string of failed launches in recent years has called into doubt Russia's ability to maintain the same high standards of their manufacturing.

"The emergency rescue system worked, the vessel was able to land in Kazakhstan. the crew are alive", the Russian space agency Roscosmos said in a tweet. -Russian cooperation in space.

A Soyuz rocket meant to carry Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin and a United States astronaut Nick Hague failed during launch and plummeted back to earth in the skies above Kazakstan on Thursday morning.

The rocket took off from Kazakhstan and was on its way to the International Space Station.

But the consequences of the failed launch will ripple through the space station's activities.

It's the first space mission for Hague, who joined NASA's astronaut corps in 2013.

The rescue capsule landed about 20 kilometers (12 miles) east of the city of Dzhezkazgan in Kazakhstan.

Rescue workers reached the site of the emergency landing and evacuated Ovchinin and Hague.

NASA says that two astronauts from the US and Russian Federation are in good condition after an emergency landing following booster rocket failure minutes after the launch.

Thursday's early morning launch was broadcast live by NASA TV. A thorough investigation into the cause of the incident will be conducted. In a statement, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine confirmed he had been informed the two crewmembers were safe.

Eleven minutes later, it added, "The crew is returning to Earth in a ballistic descent mode", meaning that it was falling without propulsion and that its direction was determined only by the craft's momentum.

The descent was sharper than usual, meaning the crew was subjected to a greater G-force, but they were prepared for this scenario in training, according to a commentator on NASA's video livestream of the launch.

Russian Federation was forming a state commission to investigate the Soyuz launch incident, Nasa said.

Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin, left and NASA astronaut Nick Hague walk to the van that carried them to their rocket at the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on October 11, 2018. That 0.08-inch (2-millimeter) hole in the orbital module of the Soyuz vehicle created a small air leak on the space station that was detected by flight controllers on the ground and ultimately repaired by astronauts and cosmonauts on the space station. An investigation into that anomaly and how the hole was formed is also underway. Ovchinin and his colleague, NASA's Nick Hague were supposed to dock at the orbiting outpost six hours after the launch.
