Astronauts who crash landed after major launch failure will head back to ISS in same rocket

Astronauts who crash landed after major launch failure will head back to ISS in same rocketThe head of Russia’s space agency said that the pair have been provisionally scheduled to fly back to the International Space Station in spring of next year. Russian space agency Roscosmos has suspended all launches after the major malfunction as it investigates the cause of the problem. Thursday’s accident was the first serious launch problem experienced by a manned Soyuz space mission since 1983, when a crew narrowly escaped before a launch pad explosion.

NASA says will use Russia's Soyuz despite rocket failure

NASA says will use Russia's Soyuz despite rocket failureNASA chief Jim Bridenstine on Friday praised the Russian space programme and said he expected a new crew to go to the International Space Station in December despite a rocket failure. “I fully anticipate that we will fly again on a Soyuz rocket and I have no reason to believe at this point that it will not be on schedule,” he told reporters. The NASA administrator spoke to reporters at the US embassy in Moscow a day after a Soyuz rocket failure forced Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin and US astronaut Nick Hague to make an emergency landing shortly after takeoff in Kazakhstan.

Photos taken after Russian rocket failure prove that human spaceflight is never routine

Photos taken after Russian rocket failure prove that human spaceflight is never routineI never want to understand the kind of fear that the families of NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin experienced in the wee hours of Thursday morning.  Both crewmembers were aboard a Russian-made Soyuz rocket bound for a six-month stay on the International Space Station when their rocket malfunctioned, forcing an abort of the mission and sending Hague and Ovchinin on an extreme ride back to Earth within the crew capsule.  Hague and Ovchinin are safely back on Earth after the abort, during which they likely experienced the force of seven times Earth's gravity.  SEE ALSO: NASA video shows looming Hurricane Michael from space New photos posted by NASA show relieved family members hugging Hague and Ovchinin after they arrived safely back on solid ground.

This type of Soyuz rocket has been flying people to space since 2001, and until now, it has never failed, according to
Space News. The rocket performed admirably in 55 flights over the course of 17 years. WATCH: Astronauts finally brought a fidget spinner to space

Syria's Idlib under 'violent' air strikes after Tehran failure

Syria's Idlib under 'violent' air strikes after Tehran failureAl Munţār (Syria) (AFP) – Syria’s last major rebel bastion Idlib was Saturday targeted by the “most violent” Russian air strikes in a month, a monitor said, after the failure of a three-way summit on the Syrian conflict. The renewed strikes came a day after the leaders of rebel backer Turkey and regime allies Russia and Iran failed at the summit in Tehran to agree on how to stave off a threatened offensive on the northwestern province of Idlib. Aid organisations have warned that any military campaign to retake the region of nearly three million people on the Turkish border could spark one of the worst humanitarian disasters in Syria’s seven-year war.
