The recent accident during the launch of the Soyuz MS-10 booster to the International Space Station on October 11 occurred because of a technical error.Having studied the circumstances of the accident, specialists believe that the accident occurred as a result of a design flaw made during the assembly of the spacecraft in the assembly unit of Baikonur cosmodrome.Experts examined the fragments of the first and second stages of the Soyuz-FG booster. The fragments were delivered to Samara launch vehicle delivered to Samara from the crash site .On October 11, the Soyuz-FG launch vehicle with the Soyuz MS-10 manned spacecraft blasted off from the Baikonur cosmodrome. Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and NASA astronaut Nick Hague were on board (Hague was flying into space for the first time). However, during the 119th second of the flight, the carrier crashed, and the crew was evacuated. The participants of the failed mission to the ISS landed safely in a descent capsule in the territory of...

Nick Hague is back on Earth, but he doesn’t want to be.  Last week, the NASA astronaut was expected to fly to the International Space Station for a months-long stay in orbit that would be his first mission to space.  But things didn’t go according to plan.  On Thursday, not long after the launch of Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin’s Soyuz rocket to the station, something went wrong.  While it’s still unclear exactly what happened, the Soyuz automatically aborted the mission, sending the capsule carrying the two crew members on an extreme ride back to Earth without ever making it to the station.

Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin on Tuesday said the G-force during last week's emergency landing of the Soyuz spacecraft felt like a concrete block on his chest but he and NASA astronaut Nick Hague are now in "great" health. Ovchinin and Hague were forced to make an emergency landing after an accident on their rocket minutes after blast-off to the International Space Station, with the rapid deceleration subjecting them to a painful G-force overload.

Officials investigating the failed launch of a Russian Soyuz spacecraft said Friday they had identified part of the reason for the accident. The rocket lifted off from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan early Thursday on what was scheduled to be a six-hour flight to the International Space Station. The launch was aborted and the two-man crew, Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin and NASA astronaut, Nick Hague, were blasted free of the rocket inside their capsule and hurtled back to Earth, falling from almost 40 miles.

Russia said Friday it was likely to bring forward the flight of a new manned space mission to the International Space Station but postpone the launch of a cargo ship after a rocket failure that forced two crew members to make an emergency landing. It was the first such incident in Russia's post-Soviet history -- an unprecedented setback for the country's space industry. Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin and US astronaut Nick Hague sped back to Earth when the Soyuz rocket failed shortly after launching from Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Thursday.

A fault in a Soyuz rocket booster has resulted in an aborted crew mission to the International Space Station, but fortunately no loss of life. The astronauts in the capsule, Nick Hague (US) and Alexey Ovchinin (Russia) successfully detached upon recognizing the fault and made a safe, if bumpy, landing nearly 250 miles east of the launch site in Kazakhstan. This high-profile failure could bolster demand for U.S.-built crewed spacecraft.

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin were forced to make an emergency landing in Kazakhstan this morning during their attempted trip to the International Space Station. The duo were on board a Russian-built Soyuz rocket, launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan when, according to early reports from NASA, the rocket's booster failed minutes after liftoff. NASA reported in a tweet that the “...Soyuz capsule is returning to Earth via a ballistic descent, which is a sharper angle of landing compared to normal.” A search and rescue team was deployed to pick up the astronaut and cosmonaut from the capsule's landing site, approximately 12 miles east of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan. Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, will be conducting a formal investigation into what went wrong with their rocket. Scary shit. Read the rest
