After Rocket Failure, Astronauts To Go Back Into Space: Russian Official

After Rocket Failure, Astronauts To Go Back Into Space: Russian Official

A USA astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut are alive after a failure during a mission to the International Space Station.

While the initial launch at 04:40am ET was successful, the problem with the booster soon became apparent.

Russia's Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft carrying Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin and NASA astronaut Nick Hague, blasts off from the launch pad at the Baikonur cosmodrome on October 11, 2018.

Search and rescue teams from Russian Federation arrived as soon as the spacecraft touched ground to assist the astronauts.

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 9:40am BST this morning.

Hague was born in the same year the U.S. and the Soviet Union launched their first joint space mission, the Apollo-Soyuz, or Soyuz-Apollo mission in 1975. "A collision occurred during the separation of the first and second stages", said Sergei Krikalyov, Roscosmos Executive Director for Manned Flights via a report that appeared on TASS.

Saint-Jacques spent time in a Soyuz capsule in August, as part of a disaster training simulation. It was not clear why the two stages had collided, Krikalev said, saying it was possible the rocket had changed trajectory slightly. He added that a "thorough investigation into the cause of the incident will be conducted". A state commission has been established to investigate the incident.

NASA said that rescue teams have reached Nick Hague and Roscosmos' Alexei Ovchinin and they have been taken out of the capsule and were in good condition. Preliminary findings are expected later this month.

What went wrong? The Russian Soyuz rocket malfunctioned on lift-off.

Thursday's mission was supposed to transport a Russian Cosmonaut and American Astronaut to relieve members who are already aboard the International Space Station.

He said that the launch failure underlined the need for multiple launch systems to complement one another.

In 2008, Expedition 16 crew experienced a similar steep ballistic descent on return from the ISS as did cosmonauts returning from the Salyut space station in 1979. 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. Luckily, the two astronauts on board - Alexey Ovchinin and Nick Hague - made it back to Earth safely, narrowly avoiding tragedy.

We can talk all we want about the future of space travel in light of the failure, but at the end of the day, this is a human story about two people who came way too close to dying in space Thursday.

The crash comes after Roscosmos head Dmitry Rogozin accused Elon Musk of conspiring with the Pentagon to force other players out of the space industry and suggested that worldwide astronauts had sabotaged the ISS by drilling the hole found in its hull. These "guys will fly", he said in a tweet, in which he posted a photo of himself with the astronauts. "We are planning their flight for the spring next year", Rogozin wrote, posting a photograph of himself with his arms around the two men aboard a plane.
