  • NASA astronaut, Russian cosmonaut make emergency landing after Soyuz rocket failure

Before launch, Glover made a presentation about the mission, boasting about the reliability of the Russian-made Soyuz rocket the two were to launch in.

Nasa astronaut Nick Hague and Roscosmos's Alexei Ovchinin lifted off in a booster rocket, intending to travel to the International Space Station (ISS).

A Soyuz rocket carrying crew members to the International Space Station (ISS) malfunctioned during a launch in Kazakhstan.

The crew remains in good condition and in touch with ground rescue teams, according to NASA.

Rescue crews are now heading towards the emergency landing site in the barren Kazakh steppe to provide support for the crew.

Russian Federation has continued to rely on Soviet-designed booster rockets to launching commercial satellites, as well as crews and cargo to the International Space Station. He added that space crew is trained to endure such load.

Soyuz flights are suspended while the Russian space agency Roscosmos investigates the cause of the failure.

Oleg Orlov, the head of the Institute for Medical and Biological Problems, Russia's top space medicine research center, said on Russian television astronauts endured six Gs during the sharp ballistic descent.

Thursday's incident was the first launch mishap for a Russian Soyuz booster since an on-pad abort in August 1983, CBS reported. Shortly after launch, there was an anomaly with the booster and the launch ascent was aborted, resulting in a ballistic landing of the spacecraft.

A Russian space industry source was cited by the Interfax news agency as saying that there was enough food onboard the ISS to last until April of next year.

Hague was born in the same year the USA and the Soviet Union launched their first joint space mission, the Apollo-Soyuz, or Soyuz-Apollo mission in 1975.

NASA is holding a press briefing today at noon EDT (1600 GMT) to discuss the failure of today's (Oct. 11) astronaut launch to the International Space Station. Both men appear understandably disappointed in the wake of what they just experienced, and the realization that they won't be headed to the International Space Station any time soon.

Had the launch gone smoothly, Ovchinin and Hague would have reached the space station later today.

Also, the December launch of the next crew members, which included Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques, could be on indefinite hold, as could any other crewed launches that have been scheduled.
