Soyuz-crash probe will 'go swiftly,' keeping launches on schedule — NASA chief

Soyuz-crash probe will 'go swiftly,' keeping launches on schedule — NASA chief

Before today, the last failure was the 1983 Soyuz T-10a mission. That in turn had hindered the separation of the first stage of the rocket from its second stage.

There was no immediate word on whether the space station crew might need to extend its own six-month mission. A November spacewalk was planned in order to gather more information.

Hague and Ovchinin remained under medical observation Friday.

Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin promised that Hague and Ovchinin will be given a chance soon to perform a stint on the orbiting outpost.

Currently, humanity has only one spaceship capable of taking people to the International Space Station (ISS) and back, the Russian Soyuz. They endured higher than usual G-force during the emergency landing. Two of these rockets are scheduled to launch in November from US soil and will presumably still do so. But it was a very good day when the crews came home alive. NASA said Hague and Ovchinin experienced more than six times the force of gravity before tumbling onto an expanse more than 200 miles from the Russian-operated Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. "Not every mission that fails, ends up so successful", he added. Russian Federation is now under pressure to prove its space program is safe or face losing lucrative fees to carry USA astronauts into space.

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.

Michael expected to gain hurricane strength as it approaches Florida
The bottom line is that tropical storm force winds are likely, meaning winds ranging from 40 miles per hour to as high as 70+. Latest report shows Michael carrying 75 miles per hour max sustained winds with wind gusts exceeding 100 miles per hour .

Sebastian Vettel: Max Verstappen completely to blame for clash
He was up to sixth by the third corner, passing both Toro Rosso , then fifth when he passed Romain Grosjean's Haas into Spoon. The German is now 50 points behind his championship rival Lewis Hamilton , who leads the driver standings with 306 points.

Turkey has audio of Saudi writer's killing, reports say
He says if the kingdom doesn't buy its weaponry from the United States, they will buy it from Russian Federation . CNN recently reported that Turkish officials say they have audio and video that proves Khashoggi was murdered.

Hague and Rogozin will spend a couple of days at Star City undergoing routine medical checks, before Hague returns to Houston. NASA also said in a statement that "NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine and the NASA team are monitoring the situation carefully", and that a "thorough investigation" will be conducted.

Two astronauts from the USA and Russia were safe after an emergency landing Thursday in the steppes of Kazakhstan following the failure of a Russian booster rocket carrying them to the International Space Station. All Soyuz flights, both manned and those carrying vital supplies such as food and equipment, have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. He added that Russian Federation will fully share all relevant information with the U.S.

NASA says that two astronauts from the US and Russian Federation are in good condition after an emergency landing following booster rocket failure minutes after the launch. We await further word from the search and rescue team.

As described by Popular Mechanics, the term refers to a way of landing built into the capsule, in case of emergencies like this one.

While it no longer has a shuttle program, the US does still send supply rockets up to the station. That 0.08-inch (2-millimeter) hole in the orbital module of the Soyuz vehicle created a small air leak on the space station that was detected by flight controllers on the ground and ultimately repaired by astronauts and cosmonauts on the space station.

Krikalyov said that "in theory" the International Space Station which serves as a scientific lab could remain unmanned but added Russian Federation would do "everything possible not to let this happen". -Russian cooperation in space, voicing hope that tensions between Moscow and Washington in other areas wouldn't affect that relationship.
