After Soyuz Failure, Space Is Now Weirdly Inaccessible To Astronauts

The two astronauts are making an emergency landing after a Russian booster rocket carrying them into orbit to the International Space Station has failed after launch.

The capsule's parachute deployed successfully, however, landing them on the grassy steppe about 250 miles from the Baikonur Cosmodrome rented by Russian Federation.

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin are in what NASA director Jim Bridenstine described as "good condition" after surviving an emergency landing after a booster failure on a Russian Soyuz rocket Thursday.

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.

Hurricane Michael tears Florida towns apart, six dead
Almost 950,000 homes and businesses were without power in Florida , Alabama, the Carolinas and Georgia on yesterday. In Panama City, buildings were crushed, tall pine trees were sent flying and a steeple was knocked off a church.

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.

The capsule jettisoned from the booster and went into a ballistic descent, landing at a sharper than normal angle and subjecting the crew to heavy G-loads. After about 20 minutes of uncertainty, Russian officials confirmed the crew were OK, and had landed about 20km east of Dzhezkazgan, a city in central Kazakhstan. The city is about 450 kilometers from the Russia's Baikonur space center, which Russian Federation operates through an agreement with the Republic of Kazakhstan. Spacecraft returning from the ISS normally land in that region.

USA and Russian space officials said the two were in good condition even though they experienced a gravitational force that was six to seven times more than is felt on Earth.

The chief of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, promised that both men will be given another chance to reach the space station.

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.

A U.S. astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut are alive after a failure during a mission to the International Space Station. And when we learned that the crew was safe and descending it was a moment to behold. The derivative has been transporting crews to the space station since coming into service in 2001, conducting 55 successful flights in 17 years.

They set the trajectory for the flight, and if they aren't running at full capacity could send the rocket in completely the wrong direction. In August, a hole appeared in a Soyuz capsule already docked to the ISS that caused a brief loss of air pressure and had to be patched.

It was the first such incident in Russia's post-Soviet history - an unprecedented setback for the country's space industry. NASA wanted to wait a couple of hours to test a solution on Earth but the Russians took it upon themselves to plug the leak and disregarded the American recommendations.
