No more taxi service to Space Station after Soyuz failure

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

Earlier NASA warned the Soyuz capsule was returning to Earth "via a ballistic descent, which is a sharper angle of landing compared to normal".

NASA rookie astronaut Nick Hague and second-time flyer Aleksey Ovchinin of the Russian space agency landed without injuries, the Interfax news agency reported.

The two astronauts-US astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin-were reported to say they felt "weightlessness" as the crew capsule detached. -Russian crew to the International Space Station failed during its ascent Thursday (Oct. 11), sending its crew capsule falling back toward Earth in a ballistic re-entry, NASA officials said.

The Soyuz-FG rocket booster which carries the Soyuz MS-10 capsule is pictured on its way to the International Space Station.

Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin and United States astronaut Nick Hague are likely to go into space in the spring after their flight was suddenly aborted, the head of the Russian space agency said Friday. The capsule landed about 20 kilometres east of the city of Dzhezkazgan in Kazakhstan. The agency is waiting for both Boeing and SpaceX to deliver home-grown spacecraft so it no longer has to rely on Russian Federation to send supplies and crew to the ISS.

"Thank God the crew is alive", said Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin. "The crew's safety systems worked".

The taxi service to the orbiting International Space Station (ISS) is taking no passengers until further notice.

This is the first time a Soyuz craft has failed.

The space agency tweeted: "There's been an issue with the booster from today's launch".

Roscosmos pledged to fully share all relevant information with NASA, which pays up to $82 million per Soyuz seat to the space station.

All fishing boats and trawlers over North Bay and the deep sea have been advised to remain sheltered till further notice. Horticulture crops suffered extensive damage in Srikakulam district while paddy suffered damage in Vizianagaram.

Russian officials said crewed space launches have been suspended pending an investigation into the malfunction.

Photographs later released by Roscosmos after the rescue showed the two astronauts smiling and relaxing on sofas at a town near their landing site as they underwent medical tests.

Russian flight controllers described the forces experienced by Hague and Ovchinin as six to seven Gs due to the lack of velocity when the failure occurred.

In a bar in the small town of Peabody, Kan., in the middle of the night, astronaut Nick Hague's family huddled around television screens.

Also, the December launch of the next crew members, which included Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques, could be on indefinite hold, as could any other crewed launches that have been scheduled.

It was the first space mission for Hague, who joined NASA's astronaut corps in 2013.

A terrifying video shows the moment that two crew members fear for their lives as they are jolted up and down in the cockpit. The harrowing accident went down in history as the world's first manned space launch abort.

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.

Glitches found in Russia's Proton and Soyuz rockets in 2016 were traced to manufacturing flaws at the plant in Voronezh.
