  • Astronauts aboard ISS afraid of aborting space launch

The capsule of the Russian Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft with Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and U.S. astronaut Nick Hague on board made an emergency landing in Kazakhstan on Thursday after the carrier rocket malfunctioned shortly after lift-off.

As a result of this, the three astronauts now on the ISS - Alexander Gerst from ESA, Serena Auñón-Chancellor from NASA and Sergey Prokopyev from Roscosmos - are stranded on the station.

"They all hope that everything goes as planned", Prokopyev said.

Launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, the mission was supposed to take the two men to the International Space Station (ISS).

This means that while they will be able to return to Earth, if they do so there will be no crew aboard the station until another crew can be launched.

Russia's space agency Roscosmos was not immediately available for comment on Saturday on the Interfax report.

Russian Federation then suspended manned space missions and is investigating the cause of the incident.

The crew aboard the International Space Station (ISS) has enough fuel, oxygen, water, and food to last at least six months, Vladimir Solovyov, flight director of the Russian segment of the ISS, was cited as saying by Russian news agencies on Sunday. Russia's Soyuz shuttle is as of now the main vehicle for spaceflights between the ISS and the Earth.
