  • Astronauts safe after failed rocket launch, emergency bail-out

He added that the president is receiving regular updates about the situation.

In statements by both Russian Federation and NASA the crew is said to be in "good condition", and no serious injuries have been reported.

Russian space officials have said they are investigating whether a hole that caused an oxygen leak on the ISS was drilled deliberately by astronauts. Bridenstine attended the launch at Kazakhstan's Baikonur cosmodrome with Rogozin as part of an effort to mend relations between the two space superpowers strained by NASA's Commercial Crew Program.

He and Ovchinin were due to join Expedition 57 Commander Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency, NASA Flight Engineer Serena Auñón-Chancellor and Roscosmos Flight Engineer Sergey Prokopyev on the ISS.

3 minutes, 15 seconds after liftoff from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 4:47 a.m. EDT, something went wrong with the Soyuz rocket bringing crew members to the International Space Station. Search and rescue teams were immediately scrambled to recover the crew and paratroopers were dropped from a plane to reach the site and help the rescue effort.

Dzhezkazgan is about 450 kilometers (280 miles) northeast of Baikonur, and spacecraft returning from the ISS normally land in that region.

Both are scheduled to return to the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia, today; Hague is expected to fly home to Houston next week. Larson said this event can have an impact on efforts here in Colorado to send Americans back into space on American rockets. Officials are also investigating the unusual hole recently found in a Soyuz spacecraft aboard the International Space Station.

For comparison, high-G roller coasters like the Rock "n" Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida and Carowinds' Nighthawk Flying Cobras produce a maximum of about five Gs during rides that last less than 1.5 minutes.

All things considered, the Soyuz has proven itself reliable historically and its launch escape system - at various stages of flight - has proven effective three times now. "That means the crew will not be going to the International Space Station today".

Russian space agency Roscomos will reportedly perform an inspection of the Progress Rocket Space Centre, where manufacturing of the Soyuz rocket took place.

Sending astronauts to the ISS will be a first for a privately owned company.

Two spacewalks planned for later this month have been postponed indefinitely, as Mr Hague was supposed to be one of the spacewalkers.

Four helicopters have taken off from Kazakh bases to search for the Soyuz crew, according to RIA news agency citing local officials.

"Shortly after launch, there was an anomaly with the booster and the launch ascent was aborted", NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a statement.

The taxi service to the orbiting International Space Station is taking no passengers until further notice.

Live video of the astronauts showed them shaking violently with the vibrations caused by the malfunction.
