Two astronauts from the United States and Russia were forced to make an emergency landing after a Russian booster rocket carrying them into orbit to the International Space Station failed after launch.
IFAX reported that the two astronauts were alive and were expected to land in Kazakhstan.
The Soyuz MS-10 capsule, ... Rogozin and Bridenstine have independently confirmed that today's launch failure will also be formally investigated.
The capsule landed about 20 kilometres east of the city of Dzhezkazgan in Kazakhstan.
Two astronauts, one American and one Russian, made a successful emergency landing on the ground in Kazakhstan after the rocket carrying them to the International Space Station experienced a malfunction.
A terrifying video shows the moment that two crew members fear for their lives as they are jolted up and down in the cockpit. NASA's own transportation system, the commercial crew vehicles under development by SpaceX and Boeing, have yet to take uncrewed test flights to the station, and those are unlikely to occur before early 2019.
Russian Federation may indefinitely postpone its next manned Soyuz launch planned for December, state-owned RIA Novosti reported, citing an unidentified person.
"The crew is returning to Earth in a ballistic descent mode". The crew has now touched down in Kazakhstan, where they are being attended by search and rescue personnel. Last month, an oxygen leak was found in the International Space Station that Russia's space chief said was caused deliberately.
Thursday's incident was the first launch mishap for a Russian Soyuz booster since an on-pad abort in August 1983, CBS reported.
