Shortly after launch of the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft there was an anomaly with the booster and the launch ascent was aborted, leading to a ballistic touchdown of the spacecraft.
The Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to the Worldwide House Station at four:40 a.m. EDT Thursday, Oct. 11 (2:40 p.m. in Baikonur) carrying American astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin.
Search and rescue groups had been deployed to the touchdown web site. Hague and Ovchinin are out of the capsule and are reported to be in good situation. They are going to be transported to the Gagarin Cosmonaut Coaching Heart in Star Metropolis, Russia exterior of Moscow.
NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine and the NASA staff are monitoring the scenario fastidiously. NASA is working carefully with Roscosmos to make sure the protected return of the crew. Security of the crew is the utmost precedence for NASA. A radical investigation into the reason for the incident will probably be carried out.
