NASA says will use Russia's Soyuz rocket again despite accident

NASA says will use Russia's Soyuz rocket again despite accident

Roscosmos and NASA said the three-stage Soyuz booster suffered an emergency shutdown of its second stage.

But he said a replacement space station crew would need to be in place before SpaceX or Boeing demo launches next year.

Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists: "Thank God the cosmonauts are alive". He added that the president is receiving regular updates about the situation.

Search and rescue teams reported they were in contact with the Soyuz crew, who said they were in good condition.

He watched Thurday's 2-man Soyuz rocket launch to the International Space Station with all of the optimism and anticipation of the countless other successful missions. Search and rescue teams went into action and retrieved the astronauts by helicopter.

Dzhezkazgan is about 450 kilometers (280 miles) northeast of Baikonur, and spacecraft returning from the ISS normally land in that region.

The Russian capsule experienced a booster problem which meant the two-man crew's six-month mission to the International Space Station has had to be delayed.

US astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin parachuted to the ground safely in their capsule after a booster on the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft failed, NASA and Russia's space agency said.

Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Russian space agency Roscosmos, tweeted shortly after the incident that a commission of inquiry had already begun work on figuring out the cause, by studying telemetry data from the craft.

When asked by Eamonn Holmes to describe each other in three words, Brooksbank said Eugenie was a "bright shining light". If you didn't know, Eugenie had surgery at 12 to correct scoliosis, and wanted her scars to be visible.

Earlier this week, Bridenstine emphasized that collaboration with Russia's Roscosmos remains important.

It was USA astronaut Nick Hague calmly relaying information in Russian to flight controllers.

Hague and Ovchinin launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 4:40 a.m. ET, heading to join the crew of the International Space Station.

Safety history: This is the first major issue with a Russian Soyuz booster since a mission was aborted on-pad in August 1983, when a capsule pulled away from an exploding booster. Cosmonauts Vladimir Titov and Gennady Strekalov separated the capsule and landed safely near the launchpad.

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

The launch failure raises questions about the continued reliability of Russia's Soyuz launch system, which lost a cargo spacecraft at the end of 2016 and sent a Soyuz capsule with a hole in it to the ISS earlier this year.

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

A Soyuz capsule is now docked with the ISS, the MS-09. Amid the still unresolved controversy over the mysterious hole in the space station, Roskosmos chief Rogozin has suggested that Moscow may not renew it. With Thursday's failed launch, just three people remain on the station, an American astronaut, Serena Auñón-Chancellor, the German Commander Alexander Gerst, and Russian Sergey Prokopyev.
