ISS: Space rocket declares emergency after launch – astronauts parachute out | Daily Star

The Soyuz MS-10 rocket had four boosters strapped to its central core.
Ovchinin spent six months on the station in 2016. In 1975, a manned Soyuz failed to separate between stages during an ascent and triggered the abort system.
Gerst tweeted his relief that the two astronauts were safe, saying the day's events "showed again what an fantastic vehicle the Soyuz is, to be able to save the crew from such a failure". "A lot of people very, very happy". "That was a quick flight", he said in a calm voice in a streamed video of the incident. "It starts slowly spinning ... and then the parachute comes out and they land". "We don't normally pay attention to launches like this because they happen so often". The crew experienced about eight Gs as the capsule spun around the trajectory access landing about 275 miles off course.
"I'm grateful that everyone is safe", Bridenstine said on Twitter. "That's an fantastic capability and we can't understate how important it is. Not every mission that fails ends up so successfully". "Operational teams were outstanding in ensuring our safety & returning us to family & friends".
Hadfield noted that the launch failure should not be seen as an indictment of the Soyuz rockets, calling mechanical failure part and parcel of space travel.
At this moment, there are no Soyuz spacecraft berthed at the orbiting science station.
With the two astronauts on board now safe, ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst is giving us a new perspective on today's launch.
Space is an area of cooperation between the United States and Russian Federation at a time of fraught relations. From the optimistic vantage point of the past, we were supposed to have space stations on the Moon and Mars by now.
Thursday's mission was supposed to transport a Russian Cosmonaut and American Astronaut to relieve members who are already aboard the International Space Station.
A Soyuz capsule attached to the station which they use to ride back to Earth is designed for a 200-day mission, meaning that their stay in orbit could only be extended briefly. It could operate like that for a long time, barring a major equipment failure, he said. The hole caused a brief loss of air pressure before being fixed.
It was the first such incident in Russia's post-Soviet history - an unprecedented setback for the country's space industry. The men planned to replace the batteries at the United States module.
The station's ability to function with no humans onboard was confirmed by Russian Federation, but Roscosmos will do "everything possible" to avoid this scenario, Krikalev stressed.
The investigation into a mysterious hole on a Russian ISS module has been left on a cliffhanger as several spacewalks had to be scrapped after a Soyuz rocket failed to bring two crewmembers aboard the station. Should the "pumps do their job, and all the other systems - the [solar] arrays to continue to rotate, and we keep the batteries charged - there's nothing that says we can't continue".
An "anomaly" with the booster led to the voyage to the International Space Station being aborted two minutes in, NASA said.
But he also underlined the need for continuing U.S. NASA wanted to wait a couple of hours to test a solution on Earth but the Russians took it upon themselves to plug the leak and disregarded the American recommendations.
