Soyuz makes emergency landing after engine problem

Soyuz makes emergency landing after engine problem

The booster rocket carrying a Soyuz spacecraft with a Russian and USA astronaut on board headed for the International Space Station failed mid-air on Thursday, forcing the crew to make an emergency landing.

The Russian Soyuz spacecraft is now the only vehicle for ferrying crews to the International Space Station following the retirement of the US space shuttle fleet.

According to Nasa, the crew is returned to Earth inside the Soyuz capsule "in a ballistic descent mode".

U.S. astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin were rescued without injuries in Kazakhstan.

Upon arrival, the two new crew members were scheduled to be welcomed by Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency, the expedition's commander, as well as Serena Aunon-Chancellor of NASA and Sergey Prokopyev of Roscosmos.

USA and Russian space officials said the astronauts were in good condition after enduring gravitational force that was six-to-seven times more than is felt on Earth.

Hillary Clinton sat down for an interview with Christiane Amanpour, in which she stated that Democrats can not be civil with Republicans.

Family members wore custom-made "Team Hague" jackets, with patches sewn on representing NASA, the International Space Station, and the official mission that took place Thursday. Three crew are now aboard the station and were due to return in December. NASA said Hague and Ovchinin experienced more than six times the force of gravity before tumbling onto a grassy expanse more than 200 miles from the Russian-operated Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

The 1975 Soyuz-18-1 mission was much further along in its flight when the abort occurred: just under five minutes, amid the rocket's second and third stage separation. They then started the process of flying back to Baikonur. After an aborted launch on Thursday, Rogozin promised that Hague and Ovchinin will be given another chance soon to work on the International Space Station.

Over the past few years the Russian space industry has suffered a series of problems including the loss of a number of satellites and other spacecraft.

"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".

Bridenstine was on site at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan for the launch, his first time at the facility as head of the agency. The United States' first attempt to launch a satellite into orbit ended in failure and an explosion. "It has been a hard day", Bridenstine said on Thursday.

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. A thorough investigation into the cause of the incident will be conducted. "We're thrilled that even though it was a launch failure, all of the safety systems worked". "We are anxiously anticipating early next year the test of two separate commercial crew vehicles that will fly to the International Space Station - SpaceX ad Boeing". -Russian cooperation in space, voicing hope that it wouldn't be affected by politics.
