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.

It's now been nearly a week since the Soyuz rocket ferrying a NASA astronaut and Russian cosmonaut failed during launch, leading to a mission abort and sending the passengers on a course right back down to Earth. It was an unfortunate incident that appears to have been traced to a collision between rocket components, but while we wait for the final verdict we've been treated to a first-hand account of how the stressful journey unfolded, straight from one of the passengers. In a new interview with NBC News, NASA astronaut Nick Hague explains what it was like to be sitting in the crew capsule when the rocket strapped to its rear failed. "The first two minutes of the launch were going great," Hague says. "Everything was nominal, and it was right after the first staging, when the boosters started to separate inside, it went from normal to 'something was wrong' pretty quick." That's a pretty casual way to describe being strapped to failing rocket, bu...

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.

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.
