  • Soyuz MS-10 Launch Fails Due to Booster Issue Seeing Astronauts Returned to Earth

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Roscosmos' Alexey Ovchinin lifted off in Kazakhstan at around 2:40 p.m. local time from the Russia-leased Baikonur Cosmodrome atop a Soyuz booster rocket.

Russian news agencies reported that booster rockets carrying the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft on a mission headed for the International Space Station failed mid-air, forcing the crew to abort the flight and make the landing.

IFAX reported that the two astronauts were alive and were expected to land in Kazakhstan.

"Teams have been in contact with the crew".

Russian Cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin and U.S. astronaut Nick Hague were on board but their lives "are not in danger", said Russian state TV.

The rocket was launched from the Soviet-era cosmodrome in Baikonur, Kazakhstan.

They were to dock at the International Space Station six hours later, but the booster suffered engine failure minutes after the launch.

NASA confirmed the crew had landed safely back on earth at 8.23pm (AEST).

It was the first space mission for Hague, who joined NASA's astronaut corps in 2013. The current Soyuz on the ISS, Soyus MS-09, launched in June and has an orbital lifetime of about 200 days.

Ovchinin spent six months on the station in 2016.
