Camera footage of Soyuz MS-10 launch failure released

Russia suspended all launches after the accident on October 11 unprecedented for Russia's post Soviet manned launches that saw the rocket fail minutes after blast-off

They have been driven to do this because, at present, the Soyuz spacecraft is the only means by which NASA, Russia, and their worldwide partners have of getting people to and from the station.

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 Russian rocket that carried two people to space last month failed and sent the craft back to Earth because of "deformation" of a part that was made during assembly at the cosmodrome, a space official said on November 1.

The crew is set to include Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques, who was originally scheduled to fly to the station December 20 on a six-month mission.

Roscosmos is due to hold a press conference Thursday to further detail the findings of the accident probe.

Roscosmos also said that the crew of the ongoing mission may return home on December 20, TASS reported.

Three children killed when struck at Fulton County bus stop
Court documents say Alyssa Shepherd got out of jail Tuesday evening after posting a $15,000 bond on reckless homicide charges. Tony Slocum of the Indiana State Police said, according to NBC in Chicago. "The two boys were a life spark", Ingle told WRTV.

The last time Russian Federation saw an aborted manned launch was in 1983, when two Soviet cosmonauts jettisoned and landed safely after a launch pad explosion. When the planned separation occurs, two of the three visible portions of the previous stage fall off and away from the spacecraft as they should, but the one on the left side of the video hangs on for an extra moment, tumbling towards the rocket rather than away from it.

Live video of the astronauts inside showed them shaking violently with vibrations caused by the malfunction. Both men were fine.

The Russian space agency Roscosmos immediately launched an investigation into the rocket failure.

"We have conclusively established that the only place where [damage to the sensor] could have taken place was the Baikonur cosmodrome during the rocket's assembly".

"The abnormal separation was caused by the nonopening of the lid of the nozzle meant to separate aside Block D oxidizer tank, due to the deformation of the separation sensor pin [which was bent by 6 degrees and 45 minutes]", Roscosmos officials said in a statement today.

Following the investigation by the space experts, "appropriate law enforcement authorities" will work out who is guilty of the assembly mistake, said Roscosmos deputy head Alexander Lopatin. It's relied upon by NASA, Europe, Russia, and other partners.

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