ISS: Space rocket declares emergency after launch – astronauts parachute out | Daily Star

The failure of the booster rocket, just two minutes after the launch and at an altitude of 50 kilometres, activated an emergency rescue system which sent the capsule carrying United States astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin into a unsafe ballistic descent.
Unmanned launches of the Progress spacecraft - which carry food and other supplies to the ISS and use the same rocket system as Soyuz - might also be suspended, Interfax has said.
Bridenstine, who is visiting Russia and Kazakhstan for the first time since his appointment as Nasa chief this year, observed the launch from Baikonur cosmodrome with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Rogozin.
Lozano agrees. "Soyuz rockets are relatively low in risk and the safety record is astounding", he said.
A Soyuz spacecraft carrying Hague and Ovchinin left the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan for the International Space Station at 2:40 p.m. local time on Thursday. China has a human space flight capability, but it has no crew missions planned before 2020, and NASA is barred by Congress from working with the Chinese Space Agency. However, this could be a problem for the current ISS crew.
The journey was expected to take six hours.
But the members were forced to make an emergency landing after suffering a booster malfunction during launch in Kazakhstan. "Spaceflight is hard. And we must keep trying for the benefit of humankind", ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst tweeted from aboard the space station as he watched and photographed the launch from space.
During a news conference on Thursday, International Space Station Operations Integration Manager Kenny Todd said that should the crew need to leave the station before a replacement crew could be sent up, the station could be piloted remotely.
An American astronaut and his Russian counterpart survived an emergency landing after their rocket failed midair during launch and careened back to Earth in the skies above Kazakhstan yesterday morning. The crew was quickly recovered and were reported in good condition.
The crash comes after Roscosmos head Dmitry Rogozin accused Elon Musk of conspiring with the Pentagon to force other players out of the space industry and suggested that global astronauts had sabotaged the ISS by drilling the hole found in its hull. The crew was able to abort, and their capsule proceeded on a ballistic reentry which touched down shortly thereafter. More importantly, the incident could have easily been a nightmare for the space program - another Challenger.
A recording of communications between the space station and NASA stated that Hague and Ovchinin had experienced 6.7 G's - about the same as Apollo astronauts felt during reentry, according to Air and Space magazine.

He added: "Spaceflight is hard!" It read: "NASA is working closely with Roscosmos to ensure the safe return of the crew". Roscosmos , which oversees the Russian space program, tweeted a photo of Hague and Ovchinin being examined in Zhezkazgan.
