Default Soyuz MS-10 makes emergency landing after a launch failure

Soyuz MS-10 makes emergency landing after a launch failure

Quote:
The launch of the Soyuz MS-10 at 4:40 a.m. EDT this morning ran into a "booster problem" near the time of the first-stage separation around two minutes after liftoff. The spacecraft entered a "ballistic reentry mode," according to NASA. Rescue helicopters lifted off from Baikonur in the direction of the projected emergency landing site between 3:51 and 3:55 a.m. Houston time and were expected to reach the site in 1.5 hours, NASA said. Around 5:20 a.m. EDT (or less than half an hour after launch), NASA reported that rescue services were in radio contact with the crew on the ground east of Dzhezkazgan in Kazakhstan following a ballistic reentry and landing. The crew was reported in good condition, NASA said.

I can't wait till Elon Musk and SpaceX take over launching Americans to the ISS next year.

This is why manned space vehicles have launch abort systems. In 51 years of service, this marks the third launch abort of a Soyuz spacecraft, after Soyuz 18-A in 1975 and Soyuz T-10-1 in 1983. With Soyuz MS-10 the booster failure happened shortly after the launch escape tower sitting atop the Soyuz was jettisoned per normal procedure at that particular point in the launch and the Soyuz's own rockets were used to separate from the booster and the Soyuz Descent Module containing the crew made an emergency re-entry and landing, which the crew trained for as part of their regular training for their mission. The crew presently aboard the International Space Station will probably have their mission extended and the Soyuz FG booster rocket grounded until the Russian federal space agency, Roskosmos, can figure out what went wrong and re-certify it for flight before the next mission to ISS, Soyuz MS-11, scheduled for December, can fly. Hopefully by late 2019, NASA astronauts can fly to ISS on two American-built spacecraft, the SpaceX Dragon 2 and Boeing's CST-100 Starliner capsules.

If a crewed SpaceX launch were to suffer a similar abort, would it return the crew to the launch site like this?


Now that would be something!

Dragon 2 would descend on parachutes and land in the water, same as Mercury, Gemini and Apollo did.

Just in case someone doesn't know, "Soyuz" means "Union" in Russian. The USSR was Sojuz Sovetskix Socialisti?eskix Respublik, I put it into the Roman alphabet. C = S in the Cyrillic alphabet, and P = R. Thus, the athletes from the former Soviet Union wore CCCP on their shirts.

In the next few years, Russia will have a replacement spacecraft for Soyuz called 'Federatsiya' (Federation), in reference to the current Russian Federation, just as Soyuz was named for the Soviet Union.

I'm not in any way positive about this, but it was my understanding that the name Soyuz was chosen because two Soyuz spacecraft could dock with each other, unlike the prior Vostok and Voskhod. The first docking in space actually occurred in 1966 on Gemini 8, when Neil Armstrong successfully docked the Gemini spacecraft with the unmanned Agena target vehicle. However, the first docking of two manned spacecraft and the first crew transfer in space occurred in 1969, when Soyuz 4 and Soyuz 5 docked in space, and two cosmonauts transferred from one vehicle to the other.
