Soyuz crew reportedly alive after emergency landing

A Russian cosmonaut and an American astronaut were recovered unharmed early Thursday after the Soyuz booster they were aboard on a launch to the International Space Station failed.

It's obviously worth noting that the Soyuz rocket is a completely separate piece of hardware from the Soyuz crew capsule, and something like the hole found in the crew capsule now attached to the International Space Station couldn't possibly result in a failure of a rocket booster.

The ballistic descent is a sharper angle of landing compared to normal, NASA said.

NASA rookie astronaut Nick Hague and second-time flyer Aleksey Ovchinin of the Russian space agency landed without injuries, the Interfax news agency reported. Dzhezkazgan is about 450 kilometres northeast of Baikonur. Soviet cosmonauts Vladimir Titov and Gennady Strekalov jettisoned and landed safely near the launch pad, surviving the heavy G-loads without injuries. The crew module was separated from the failed booster and was forced to initiate an emergency landing.

"Shortly after launch, there was an anomaly with the booster and the launch ascent was aborted, resulting in a ballistic landing of the spacecraft", the U.S. space agency said in a statement.

Only Samsungs premium phones have tele cams and they all had 12MP sensors, so this is a brand new camera module. Currently, it is running the Android 8.0 Oreo update and it uses a Type-C USB port for charging purposes.

International groups of astronauts often accompany each other to the International Space Station in joint launches.

Unnamed Russian space industry sources cited by news agencies said it would be hard to establish what had caused the incident because the booster rocket segments involved had been badly damaged in their fall.

Hague and Ovchinin only reached a bit over 6Gs, though.

In August, however, the detection of a minute pressure leak on the International Space Station became the subject of intense media speculation in Russian Federation.

Russian Soyuz are now the only vehicle used to carry astronauts to the orbiting Space Station, after the US retired its space shuttle fleet. Despite its age, the Soyuz platform has been an extremely reliable mode of transportation to space.

Russia's Investigative Committee said a criminal probe would seek to determine whether safety regulations had been violated during construction, causing major damage.

The Russian space agency, Roscosmos, coordinated the launch, which had been planned for multiple years.

Russian Federation has set up a state commission to investigate the Soyuz booster rocket failure.

Returning to Earth in a Soyuz capsule is no walk in the park on a good day.

Hague, who only joined NASA's astronaut corps in 2013, was on his first space mission. Roscosmos sent more than 70 rocket engines back to production lines to replace faulty components.
