Astronauts destined for ISS make emergency landing in Kazakhstan after takeoff malfunction

Russian news agencies reported that the crew had safely made an emergency landing and were in radio contact and that rescuers were en route to pick them up.

Video footage from the launch at the Baikonur Cosmodrome shows a large plume of smoke coming from the rocket at the moment it failed and footage from inside the capsule shows the two astronauts being violently shaken about.

The Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft blasted off from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan at 4:40 AM EDT.

Kenny Todd, operations integration manager at NASA for the International Space Station, says the three current residents of the orbiting outpost are fine and have plenty of supplies.

Search and rescue teams were deployed to the landing site.

About two minutes after launching, the three-stage Soyuz booster rocket suffered an unspecified failure of its second stage.

Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatens to Leave the UFC, Forfeit Paycheck
UFC officials on Thursday did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Nurmagomedov's threat to break his contract. Once the fighter gets into the details about fellow fighter Zubaira Tukhugov , things get juicy.

"The Soyuz capsule is returning to Earth via a ballistic descent, which is a sharper angle of landing compared to normal", NASA tweeted.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that the most important thing was that the two men were alive.

"Following the test flights, NASA will review the performance data and resolve issues as necessary to certify the systems for operational missions", the USA space agency said last week.

Thursday's failure was the first manned launch failure for the Russian space program since September 1983 when a Soyuz exploded on the launch pad.

Ovchinin spent six months on the station in 2016.

International groups of astronauts often accompany each other to the International Space Station in joint launches. The two crew members, astronaut Nick Hague and cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin, made it back to the surface safe and sound. "A thorough investigation into the cause of the incident will be conducted".

Fight Wilder and fury could not take place
Both like to exchange verbal barbs with their opponents but between the ropes Fury is more considered and tactical whilst Wilder is the big swinging puncher.

A rescue mission was launched immediately, Nasa and the Russian Roscosmos space agency said.

Both of the astronauts feel "good, as well as possible after experiencing such g-forces".

In 2008, Expedition 16 crew experienced a similar steep ballistic descent on return from the ISS as did cosmonauts returning from the Salyut space station in 1979. Yet Soyuz MS-10 had to abort the space mission after the booster's malfunction.

NASA released a statement after a Russian booster rocket on a mission to the International Space Station failed after launch.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov, who oversees space flight, promised to share all information from the investigation with the United States and said that manned space launches would be suspended until the end of the probe, according to Russian news agencies.

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. That 0.08-inch (2-millimeter) hole in the orbital module of the Soyuz vehicle created a small air leak on the space station that was detected by flight controllers on the ground and ultimately repaired by astronauts and cosmonauts on the space station.
