Astronauts Survive Emergency Landing After Booster Fails On Russian Rocket

"The Soyuzcapsulereturned to Earth via a ballistic descent, which is a sharper angle of landing compared to normal". As rescue crews arrived, Hague and Ovchinin were reported in "good condition" and found out of the capsule.
It is making contingency plans for the three current ISS crew members - German Alexander Gerst, American Serena Aunon-Chancellor and Russian Sergey Prokopiev, all of whom were scheduled to return to Earth in December - to possibly stay aboard the station longer than expected.
Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Russian space agency Roscosmos, was speaking a day after Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and American Nick Hague made a dramatic emergency landing in Kazakhstan after the failure of the Soyuz rocket carrying them to the orbital ISS. The crew landed about 20 kilometers east of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan, where rescue crews were scrambled to find them. Three crew are now aboard the station and were due to return in December.
"Thank God the crew is alive", said Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin. That's a diplomatic way to say the Russian boosterfailed, forcing the crew to perform a risky launch abort. The Soyuz is the only way to get to and from the station.
There is no official information on what exactly the problem was, but apparently the booster of the Soyuz failed to detach. The crew experienced an intense re-entry, and landed in the wilderness close to the Chinese border. Larson said this event can have an impact on efforts here in Colorado to send Americans back into space on American rockets.
Russian officials said crewed space launches have been suspended pending an investigation into the malfunction.
The launch failure marks an unprecedented mishap for the Russian space program, which has been dogged by a string of launch failures and other incidents.
All things considered, the Soyuz has proven itself reliable historically and its launch escape system - at various stages of flight - has proven effective three times now.
A terrifying video shows the moment that two crew members fear for their lives as they are jolted up and down in the cockpit. Those questions not only include what happened to make the Soyuz launch fail, but how NASA, Roscosmos, and the ESA will need to change the ISS schedule to accommodate today's failure.
The Roscosmos State Corporation for Space Activities known as Roscosmos had earlier tweeted pictures of the astronauts taking their place in the rocket.
Had the launch gone smoothly, Ovchinin and Hague would have reached the space station later today.
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, a move that resulted in a yearlong break in Proton launches and badly dented Russia's niche in the global market for commercial satellite launches.
"If it's two months or six, I really can't speculate on that", International Space Station Operations Integration Manager Kenny Todd told a press briefing.
