Russia: Soyuz MS-10 crew arrives in Moscow from Baikonur

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Roscosmos cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin arrived at Moscow Oblast’s Chkalovsky Airport on Friday, just a day after the emergency landing of their Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft.

Initially heading for the International Space Station (ISS), the Soyuz MS-10’s propelling rocket Soyuz-FG failed minutes after launch due to a booster failure, forcing the emergency landing by the two-man crew.

Their capsule is believed to have landed 25 kilometres (15.5 miles) away from the city of Zhezqazghan in central Kazakhstan. They were picked up by a search and rescue team and returned to Baikonur.

According to Roscosmos Chief Dmitry Rogozin, the crew is to fly to ISS next spring.
