Soyuz Space Crew Makes Emergency Landing After Terrifying Booster Failure

International Space Station crew members board the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft for the launch at the Baikonur Cosmodrome Kazakhstan

Russia is now under pressure to prove its space program is safe and received a boost on Friday when NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said he had full confidence in Russian-made Soyuz rockets and expected US astronauts to fly on them again.

Luckily, these crew members will not be stranded on the space station, as they will return to earth in the capsules they traveled to the station in.

"NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine and the NASA team are monitoring the situation carefully", the statement continued.

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

Roscosmos say they are forming a commission to investigate the launch failure.

Hague and Ovchinin would have joined the station's current crew, which includes American astronaut Serena Aunon-Chancellor.

Private-sector solutions are now in the works, including Boeing's CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX's Crew Dragon, but neither program will be ready to send humans into space until at least the winter of 2019.

The incident began with a booster emergency light illuminating in the ship of NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Roscosmos astronaut Alexei Ovchinin.

Now, a day after Hague's perilous experience, he has taken to Twitter to thank concerned onlookers and the crews that oversaw both the launch and the rescue.

Hackers can use a WhatsApp video call to hack your phone
While the PoC outlined in the bug report only causes the app to crash, it could have been modified to further compromise WhatsApp. The researcher has explained the bug as a "memory corruption bug in WhatsApp's non-WebRTC video conferencing implementation".

Two astronauts kept ice cool as their rocket malfunctioned while travelling at thousands of miles an hour on the edge of space wile carrying them to the International Space Station, cockpit audio reveals. Officials are also investigating the odd hole recently found in a Soyuz spacecraft aboard the International Space Station.

Relations between Moscow and Washington have sunk to post-Cold War lows over conflicts in Ukraine and Syria, and allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 United States presidential vote, but they have kept cooperating in space.

"We can both do more in space together than we can do alone", he said, adding his relationship with Russian space agency chief Rogozin was "very solid".

All manned launches have been suspended and a criminal probe has been launched.

Normally this only happens once the boosters have fired the module into space, and the capsule then completes the final part of the journey alone.

Thursday's accident was the first serious launch problem experienced by a manned Soyuz space mission since 1983, when a crew narrowly escaped before a launch pad explosion.

Russian Federation has continued to rely on Soviet-designed booster rockets to launching commercial satellites, as well as crews and cargo to the International Space Station.

German Astronaut Alexander Gerst, who is onboard the ISS, captured these images of the failed Soyuz launch. NASA too is conducting an investigation of its own. The hole cause a small oxygen leak while hooked up to the ISS. "We have resources well into next year for this crew, so there's no concern about resources on board". The Soyuz was supposed to discard its first stage booster, whose fuel was empty. However, the two sides have continued their cooperation in space.
