Astronauts make emergency landing after escaping malfunctioning rocket

NASA purchased seats aboard Soyuz capsules for access to the ISS following the retirement of the Space Shuttle in 2011. The probe would seek to determine whether safety regulations had been violated during construction, leading to massive damage, the Russian Investigative Committee said in a statement. In a tweet, Russian space agency Roscosmos said an emergency rescue system was activated when the booster rocket failed.

The two-man crew of a Soyuz rocket has made a successful emergency landing following the failure of a Russian booster rocket carrying them to the International Space Station (ISS).

The emergency protocols caused the two passengers to abort and sent them plummeting back down to Earth in what NASA calls a "ballistic descent" up to seven times the force of gravity. It burned up while re-entering the Earth's atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean on May 8. The escape tower then angled the capsule off to the side, ejected, and the capsule opened parachutes for landing. Search and rescue crews are heading to the landing site.

Russian Federation immediately suspended all manned space launches, the RIA news agency reported.

Still, Moscow has suspended all manned space launches until it confirms exactly what went wrong and why, and Rogozin has ordered a state commission to investigate. He said Russian Federation will share all relevant information with the U.S. Most recently, a mysterious hole was detected on the Russian section of the ISS in August, and a Soyuz launch failure destroyed 18 satellites in November 2017. Three crew are now aboard the station and were due to return in December.

There has only ever been one other launch mishap with the Soyuz, in Mongolia in 1975, according to CBS. The cosmonauts involved in that accident also survived.

They were to dock at the International Space Station six hours later, but the booster suffered engine failure minutes after the launch. He didn't say if he suspected any of the station's crew. He added that Russian Federation will fully share all relevant information with the U.S.

Russian activities in Ukraine, charges of interfering in the US presidential election of 2016 and the conflict in Syria are some of the main issues. -Russian cooperation in space.

The incident comes as the US has been making progress in its quest to end Russia's monopoly on manned flights to the ISS by encouraging private companies to conduct launches. Russian Federation stands to lose that monopoly in the coming years with the arrival of the SpaceX's Dragon v2 and Boeing's Starliner crew capsules.

"To keep space separate from the political environment has been our tradition and we want to keep that", said Bridenstine.

"That is a landing mode we've seen before", the commentator said.
