NASA astronaut, Russian cosmonaut make emergency landing on earth

A Russian Soyuz rocket, carrying two-man Russian-American crew, malfunctioned and made an emergency landing in Kazhakstan.

By early Thursday afternoon, Ovchinin and Hague were on helicopters, making their way back to Baikonur, NASA said.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said all manned launches will be suspended pending an investigation into the cause of the failure.

Most recently, a mysterious hole was detected on the Russian section of the ISS in August, and a Soyuz launch failure destroyed 18 satellites in November 2017.

Russian controllers told the space station astronauts that Hague and Ovchinin endured 6.7 times the force of gravity during their entry.

Both the US space agency NASA and Russia's Roscosmos reported that the two were quickly recovered from the landing area by rescue crews.

The rocket was transporting Hague and Ovchinin from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan for a six-month stay on the International Space Station. But it will need to be staffed before SpaceX or Boeing launches its new crew capsules next year, Todd said.

"That was a short flight".

It's an incredibly freakish turn of events in the wake of the odd discovery of damage on the Soyuz capsule. "Search and rescue crews are always pre-staged in the event something like this does happen", Dean added.

The crew reached the ground safely.

.

"There was an issue with the booster from today's launch", NASA said in a statement on its website.

However, Thursday's incident was the first manned launch failure since 1983 when a Soyuz rocket exploded in the launch area. This looked like another uneventful Soyuz launch for the first several minutes, but then the live feed showed increasingly violent shaking inside the cabin (about 2:20 in the video below). Its cause still hasn't been determined.

"Officials are now examining the launch site, documents are being seized", it said in a statement. Spacecraft returning from the ISS normally land in that region. Soviet cosmonauts Vladimir Titov and Gennady Strekalov jettisoned and landed safely near the launch pad, surviving without injuries.

The rocket, carrying an American astronaut and Russian cosmonaut, began to plummet to earth about two minutes into the six-hour mission due to what launch controllers initially called a "vehicle malfunction". "There will be a Canadian flying to the space station very soon". -Russian cooperation in space. The leak was quickly repaired, but Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin suggested that the leak was caused by something other than an accident or production defect.

The contract with the Russians ends in late 2019, and the US space agency has contracts with two American companies, Boeing and SpaceX, to step in.

But the Soyuz capsule destined for Saint-Jacques's trip in December is now being assembled, Thirsk said - and if that vehicle is similarly affected to the one that failed on Thursday, "then no, we aren't going to launch in two months".

Russian Soyuz are now the only vehicle used to carry astronauts to the orbiting Space Station, after the USA retired its space shuttle fleet.
