CU expert talks about close call in space

The two men returned to earth safely and a picture released by the Russian space agency Roscosmos showed them having their blood pressure taken in a Kazakh city near their landing site. Today showed again what an unbelievable vehicle the #Soyuz is, to be able to save the crew from such a failure.

The failure undoubtedly has major implications for the far future of the space station program, and even in more immediate terms, this will likely change how the station runs for the time being, with two fewer crewmembers than expected. So, when astronauts aboard the ISS are eagerly awaiting the arrival of new crew members you can bet that they're keeping a close eye on the launch from their birds-eye view in Earth's orbit.

Only to be disappointed in the failure of the rocket, but thankful in the safe aftermath.

The failure put the MS-10 capsule into a ballistic trajectory and it and the crew were recovered 200 miles east of the Baikonur Cosmodrome launch point, NASA said early Thursday.

Hague was born in the same year the U.S. and the Soviet Union launched their first joint space mission, the Apollo-Soyuz, or Soyuz-Apollo mission in 1975.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov, quoted by Interfax, said the problem occurred when the first and second stages of the booster rocket were in the process of separating. "A thorough investigation into the cause of the incident will be conducted", NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted alongside an official statement on the Soyuz MS-10 Launch Abort.

"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 on a visit to Moscow this week, according to the Associated Press.

The inquiry involves the Federal Bureau of Investigation reopening its previously completed background check on Judge Kavanaugh. Only 113 people have ever served on the Supreme Court, and I believe that we must do our level best to protect its sanctity".

However, in the meantime, this failure has a number of consequences for the agencies and the crew aboard the space station. Hague was supposed to be one of the spacewalkers.

"Teams have been in contact with the crew".

NASA has relied on Russian rockets to ferry astronauts to the space station since the United States retired its Space Shuttle program in 2011, although the agency has announced plans for a test flight carrying two astronauts on a SpaceX commercial rocket next April. But exactly when the astronauts will be sent home is still unclear.

The ISS crew will do their best to perform spacewalks in the future, but "on other dates", Sergei Krikalev, senior official at Russia's national space agency Roscosmos, told reporters on Friday.

Doomed: The rocket booster with space ship blasts offabout.

The rocket was launched from the Soviet-era cosmodrome in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. During the live broadcast of the launch, narration from Mission Control suggested that the booster failed to separate from the Soyuz capsule. A Falcon 9 exploded later in 2016 before it had even launched. The pair were due to join the three-person Expedition 57 crew already aboard the International Space Station. The launch was proceeding normally until the first mention of booster failure at about the 3:30 mark.

This is the first time a Soyuz craft has failed. They experienced 6.7 g's which is about equal to what Apollo astronauts felt during re-entry.
