ISS crew safe after emergency landing

Two astronauts make emergency landing after Russian rocket malfunctions during lift-off

Thanks to the extensive design and production testing, the two astronauts who blasted off off today managed to successfully disengage from the rocket carrying them, and make their way safely back to the surface, albeit with a slightly rockier trajectory than they may have liked. This Hague's first flight.

There was no immediate word on whether the space station crew might need to extend its own six-month mission.

Hague was originally scheduled to participate in spacewalks in the coming weeks to replace batteries on the outside of the space station.

Unfortunately, Hague and Ovchinin never made it that far. They will be transported to the Gargarin Cosmonaut Center in Star City, Russia outside Moscow.

Russian space officials have said they are investigating whether a hole that caused an oxygen leak on the ISS was drilled deliberately by astronauts.

That would in theory push the time limit of the crew's return to Earth to early January.

The head of Russia's top space medicine center says that two astronauts from the US and Russian Federation are feeling good after an emergency landing.

NASA said that rescue teams have reached Hague and Ovchinin and they've been taken out of the capsule and were in good condition.

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

The TASS news agency said that the ISS crew has enough supplies and that the failed launch will not affect operations. He added that space crew is trained to endure such loads.

NASA says two astronauts from the USA and Russian Federation will be flown to Moscow after they made an emergency landing.

American Nick Hague and Russian Alexey Ovchinin landed safely after an "anomaly with the booster" prompted the ascent to be aborted, NASA head Jim Bridenstine said in a statement.

The menu included a caprese salad with balsamic glaze for an appetizer and roaster chicken with fingerling potatoes and sautéed asparagus for the main course.

The launch appeared to be going smoothly, but some 90 seconds into the flight, the USA space agency Nasa reported a problem with the booster rocket between the first and second stages separating.

He said all manned launches will be suspended pending an investigation into the cause of the failure.

The incident comes as the US has been making progress in its quest to end Russia's monopoly on manned flights to the ISS by encouraging private companies to conduct launches.

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

A view shows the Soyuz capsule transporting US astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin, after it made an emergency landing following a failure of its booster rockets, near the city of Zhezkazgan in central Kazakhstan October 11, 2018.

In August, the International Space Station crew spotted a hole in a Russian Soyuz capsule docked to the orbiting outpost that caused a brief loss of air pressure before being patched.

Paratroopers will parachute to the landing site of the Soyuz capsule, Reuters reported, citing military officials. Search and rescue teams were sent to recover the crew.

The Russian Soyuz MS-09 crew craft and the Northrop Grumman Cygnus space freighter attached to the International Space Station.

Thursday's problem occurred when the first and second stages of a booster rocket, launched from the Soviet-era cosmodrome of Baikonur in the central Asian country, were separating, triggering emergency systems soon after launch.

Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin retained an enviable sang-froid Thursday as he realised while travelling at thousands of miles an hour that his spacecraft would have to make an emergency landing +.
