Commander Alexey Ovchinin and flight engineer Tyler "Nick" Hague were scheduled to blast off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 4:40:15 a.m. EDT (GMT-4; 2:40 p.m. local time), roughly the moment Earth's rotation carries the Soyuz MS-10/56S spacecraft into the plane of the space station's orbit. Soyuz is now the only means for crews to travel to and from the station, with commercial crew vehicles by Boeing and SpaceX not expected to be ready to enter service before the middle of 2019.

The rocket was carrying US astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin.

The space agency tweeted: "There's been an issue with the booster from today's launch".

Search and rescue teams were heading to the area to recover the crew.

In fact, it was on a family ski trip in 2010 where Eugenie met her soon-to-be-husband. Louis de Givenchy, the 6-year-old son of Zoe De Givenchy and Olivier De Givenchy.


Russian news agencies reported that the crew was safe and was making an emergency landing in Kazakhstan where the unsuccessful launch took place. The capsule jettisoned from the booster and went into a ballistic descent, landing at a sharper than normal angle.

"Search and rescue teams report they are in contact with the Soyuz crew, who report they are in good condition", Nasa wrote on Twitter. They had reached a good height so it was possible to descend in their capsule'.

They set the trajectory for the flight, and if they aren't running at full capacity could send the rocket in completely the wrong direction. Their Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft will arrive at the space station after a quick, 6-hour or "fast track" rendezvous rather than the traditional, two-day route.

The rocket is put into an emergency landing procedure in which the main module - holding all cargo and any astronauts on board - separates from the rocket early.
