RELEASE 18-089

NASA Statement on Soyuz MS-10 Launch Abort

The following is a statement about Thursday’s Soyuz MS-10 launch aboard to the International Space Station:

“The Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to the International Space Station at 4:40 a.m. EDT Thursday, Oct. 11 (2:40 p.m. in Baikonur) carrying American astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin. Shortly after launch, there was an anomaly with the booster and the launch ascent was aborted, resulting in a ballistic landing of the spacecraft.

“Search and rescue teams were deployed to the landing site. Hague and Ovchinin are out of the capsule and are reported to be in good condition. They will be transported to the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia outside of Moscow.

“NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine and the NASA team are monitoring the situation carefully. NASA is working closely with Roscosmos to ensure the safe return of the crew. Safety of the crew is the utmost priority for NASA. A thorough investigation into the cause of the incident will be conducted.”

Apart any other consideration stressed in the thread, I would really like to know how the crew feels about this. On one side you survived to a major accident that may cost your life. On the other you lost an opportunity you prepared for years and your whole life may take a completely different direction, as re-establishing human flight may take months (hope not years...) and you may end at the bottom of the cosmo/astronaut queue.

Today may represent a turning point in human space flight.

They are probably just happy they didn't blow up and die. If this were any other vehicle in that failure mode they probably would have.

Remember that variants of the Soyuz spacecraft were the foundation of Russia's failed manned lunar programme.   Even though the Proton-K and N-1 launch  vehicles had the nasty tendency to fail to reach orbit, the Soyuz-type launch escape system would reliably recover the Soyuz descent module.   So, it is well-proven.

The cloud that appears does look similar to the Space X CRS7 failure
