American and Russian astronaut rescued after emergency landing following rocket booster malfunction

American and Russian astronaut rescued after emergency landing following rocket booster malfunction

The rocket was carrying a Russian cosmonaut and an American astronaut who had set off for a six-month mission at the International Space Station, on a relatively rare two-man launch.

NASA said rescuers reached the crew of astronaut Nick Hague and Roscosmos' Alexei Ovchinin after they landed in Kazakhstan, and both were in good condition.

Russian space agency Roscomos will reportedly perform an inspection of the Progress Rocket Space Centre, where manufacturing of the Soyuz rocket took place.

US astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin landed safely and rescue crews who raced to locate them on the Kazakh steppe quickly linked up with them, according to the USA space agency NASA and Russia's space agency Roscosmos.

Astronauts already on the International Space Station were preparing to welcome two new members to the satellite station, but have since changed their plans.

United States military grounds entire fleet of F-35s in wake of crash
The Pentagon has ordered its entire fleet of F-35 fighters to be grounded in the wake of a Marine F-35B crash in SC last month. The temporary suspension of flight operations will also impact worldwide partners, such as Israel, that have the F-35.

The use of ballistic descent has proved controversial in the past, raising questions over the safety of the Soyuz rocket.

Which means they came back 'at a sharper angle of landing compared to normal'. 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. Mission control told astronauts aboard the space station that during the landing, "the boys" experienced forces of about 6.7 G in a call that NASA later broadcast on the live commentary. The crew landed about 20 kilometers east of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan, where rescue crews were scrambled to find them.

Search and rescue crews retrieved the crew, returning them to Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan.

The rare failed launch of the Soyuz rocket is the latest and most grave problem to beset U.S.

It can hold a crew of up to six people and at present has three people aboard, two men - a German and a Russian - as well as one female US astronaut.

Status Orange warning in place as Storm Callum approaches
The weather has already caused misery this week for Scots, with strong winds and rain causing disruption to the transport network. The winds will be at their strongest overnight gusting between 110 and 130 km/h on the coasts.

Until the investigations are completed, there will be no official information about what caused the rocket's failure to carry the crew to orbit.

Unfortunately, Hague and Ovchinin never made it that far.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine and the NASA team are monitoring the situation carefully. But if it survives the trip into space, it could be remotely guided to the ISS, and serve as the crew's new return vehicle.

There are a few potential alternatives to leaving the ISS without a crew for the first time in almost 20 years, but given the risk-adverse nature of human spaceflight, it seems unlikely NASA or Roscosmos will want to tempt fate on any of them.

The Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft blasted off from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan at 4:40 AM EDT. "I strongly believe we're going to get the right answer to what caused the hole on the International Space Station and that together we'll be able to continue our strong collaboration", Bridenstine said, as reported by the Associated Press.
