The booster carrying them failed within two minutes of flight, forcing both astronauts to make a "steep ballistic descent", NASAsaid. As rescue crews arrived, Hague and Ovchinin were reported in "good condition" and found out of the capsule.
Thursday's dramatic launch abort that returned the crew of Soyuz MS-10 safely to Earth after a still-unidentified booster anomaly was the first time a crewed spacecraft bound for the International Space Station has suffered a mission critical failure.
Reuters Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin (R) and USA astronaut Nick Hague (L) disembark from a plane, after the Soyuz spacecraft made an emergency landing following a failure of its booster rockets, as they arrive at Baikonur airport, Kazakhstan, Oct. 11, 2018. After about 20 minutes of uncertainty, Russian officials confirmed the crew were OK, and had landed about 20km east of Dzhezkazgan, a city in central Kazakhstan. Spacecraft returning from the ISS normally land in that region.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said he expected Russian President Vladimir Putin would be briefed on the incident. NASA's Bridenstine said Hague, the USA astronaut, had told him he wanted to fly again and that NASA had huge confidence in him but that he didn't know when he might fly. He didn't say if he suspected any of the current crew of three Americans, two Russians and a German aboard the station.
Since the US scrapped its space shuttle program in 2011, NASA has relied on Russian Federation to send its astronauts up to the space station.
The Russian capsule experienced a booster problem which meant the two-man crew's six-month mission to the International Space Station has had to be delayed. The agency said the rescue crews were preparing to return them to Moscow, and Roscosmos released still images of the two crew members receiving medical evaluation in Kazakhstan. Russian Federation stands to lose that monopoly in the coming years with the arrival of SpaceX's Dragon and Boeing's Starliner crew capsules.
Since its debut in the Soviet Union in 1966, the Soyuz has been the most-used launch vehicle in history.
