They successfully landed descent vehicle and was not injured.

According to the New York Times, Roscosmos will launch three astronauts, namely Anne McClain of NASA, Oleg Kononenko of Russian Federation, and David Saint-Jacques of Canada to the ISS. Hague and Ovchinin where rescued by response teams in Kazakhstan after their capsule ejected from the booster in what is called a ballistic landing, but the subsequent grounding of the Soyuz booster placed the very future of the ISS in jeopardy.

A pin has been deformed during the Assembly of the sensor in the Kazakh Baikonur cosmodrome, informed Oleg Skorobogatow in Korolev near Moscow.

Russian space officials plan to conduct two other unmanned Soyuz launches before launching a crew to the space station.

We will remind, the rocket "Soyuz" was wrecked soon after launch from the Baikonur cosmodrome on October 11. It has tasted the flavor of success for the first time since it failed to launch the similar rocket on 11 October, when the two astronauts made an emergency landing immediately after the blast off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Russian Federation.

The Russian federal space agency, known as Roscosmos, also revealed today the results of the Soyuz-anomaly investigation.

"The abnormal separation was caused by the non-opening of the lid of the nozzle meant to separate aside Block D oxidizer tank due to the deformation of the separation sensor pin (bended by 6˚45′)".

The quick return to flight will alleviate concerns about how well the ISS can function when understaffed or completely unstaffed.

It seems likely a NASA astronaut could be on that December flight.

This complete dependency should end relatively soon. Roscosmos plans to launch the Progress 71 resupply mission on November 16, and is targeting the launch of the Expedition 58 crew including NASA astronaut Anne McClain for December 3, pending the outcome of the flight readiness review.

On Thursday at 0015 hrs GMT or 0315 hrs local time, Soyuz rocket was successfully launched by Russian Federation.
