Soyuz MS-10 mishap

On October 11, a Soyuz-FG launch vehicle with two members of the new crew for the International Space Station on board failed to reach its destination, becoming the first failure of a manned space launch in modern Russian history. The announcement means both the present crew aboard the ISS and the 15 partner nations that operate the space laboratory can breathe a sigh of relief.

Russian cosmonaut and mission commander Alexei Ovchinin and USA astronaut flight engineer Nick Hague ejected in an emergency capsule, landed in Kazakhstan, and were soon rescued.

The failure has been traced back to a separation sensor pin which was bent a little over six degrees.

The Soyuz first stage consists of a core booster surrounded by a cluster of four strap-on chemical boosters.

The Russian official claims that there might be two more Soyuz rocket affected by this fault and additional checks will be introduced in the future to prevent further incidents. The investigation committee found no issues with either crew performance or the Soyuz MS-10 Emergency Crew Rescue System.

Following the malfunction Russian space agency Roscosmos launched an investigation and the findings from that investigation were released yesterday.

The Canadian Space Agency is confirming that astronaut David Saint-Jacques will launch December 3 for a six-month mission aboard the International Space Station. Before the October 11 incident, the last failure of a manned Soyuz launch occurred in 1983; that crew also landed safely.
