The Russian and American crew had to withstand a ballistic descent back to Kazakhstan on October 11, but both emerged from the landing craft safe and sound.
Nearly immediately after reports came in that the October 11th Soyuz rocket launch had gone haywire, outlets were reporting that the problem happened during "staging", a process in which the rocket detaches spent boosters.
However the safe descent to Earth by cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin and United States astronaut Nick Hague led both Roscosmos and Nasa to stand by the Soyuz system as reliable.
It is noted that the cause of the accident was the strain sensor separation, which occurred, according to preliminary data, because of violation technology in the construction of rockets at Baikonur. The agency believes the damage was caused during assembly when the boosters were being attached to the core stage at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.
Russia's space agency, Roscosmos, has released footage from a camera on board the Soyuz rocket that failed last month, forcing a dramatic emergency landing of the two astronauts on board.
All manned missions were put on hold until investigations behind the launch failure were completed - which put UAE's mission to send its first Emirati astronaut to the International Space Station (ISS) onboard the Soyuz MS-12 mission on April 5 into question as well.
Nearly three weeks ago, a Soyuz rocket carrying a NASA astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut failed in mid-flight, 31 miles above Earth's surface. The Problem with the technique is confusing, but the flight program to the ISS.
It seems likely a NASA astronaut could be on that December flight. Roscosmos plans to launch the Progress 71 resupply mission on November 16, and is targeting the launch of the Expedition 58 crew including NASA astronaut Anne McClain for December 3, pending the outcome of the flight readiness review.
The manufacturing issue might have affected two more Soyuz rockets.
