Months after aborted flight, U.S.-Russian crew makes smooth trip to space station

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin finally made it to the International Space Station today, five months after their first trip went awry. The two spacefliers were due to join the station’s crew last October, but as they were ascending from Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, one of their Soyuz rocket’s side boosters knocked into the main core, causing a rare abort and activation of the Soyuz capsule’s escape system. The capsule was thrown clear of the rocket...

Watch the crew of 2018’s failed Soyuz launch blast off again live right here

When Astronaut Nick Hague and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin were last strapped into a Russian-made Soyuz spacecraft in late 2018, things didn't exactly go as planned. A last-second abort sent the pair careening back towards Earth, which is obviously not where they intended to end up. Today, they'll get a second chance.Both Hague and Ovchinin will once again be perched atop a Russian rocket as it speeds into space, and this time they'll be joined by Hague's colleague, fellow NASA astr...

After a narrow escape from a doomed rocket, an astronaut and cosmonaut will try again to launch into space today

Three people are scheduled to launch into space at 3:14 p.m. EDT on Thursday aboard a Russian rocket ship called Soyuz. Two of the crew members — NASA astronaut Nick Hague and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin — tried to launch on a Soyuz in October, but it failed in mid-flight. An emergency escape system saved Hague and Ovchinin from the doomed rocket. The two will again try to reach the International Space Station, this time with NASA astronaut Christina Koch, who's slated to participate in the firs...

The first all-female spacewalk in history will feature women astronauts, flight directors, and mission controllers. NASA says it's a scheduling accident.

The first all-female spacewalk is scheduled to occur on March 29 outside the International Space Station. Astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch will work together in spacesuits while female mission controllers on Earth provide support. NASA said the historic first "was not orchestrated to be this way" and is a result of scheduling changes and the changing makeup of its agency. The goal of the spacewalk is to upgrade the space station's power system with new batteries. NASA is about to ...

This year, there’ll be empty spaces at the table for Thanksgiving on space station

Thanksgiving is traditionally a time for big gatherings around the dinner table, but this year’s feast on the International Space Station will be served to only three people. And only two of them have the day off. That’s because two spacefliers who were supposed to be in orbit at this time of year missed out on their ride: NASA’s Nick Hague and Russia’s Alexey Ovchinin had to return to Earth just minutes after their launch on Oct. 11 due to a Soyuz rocket malfunction. The next crew won’t arrive ...

Russians trace Soyuz rocket failure to a bent sensor; next crew to launch Dec. 3

Russian investigators say last month’s launch of a Soyuz rocket carrying two spacefliers to the International Space Station went awry because a sensor that was bent during the rocket’s assembly spoiled the separation of one of its boosters. When the damaged sensor malfunctioned, the booster didn’t separate cleanly from the Soyuz’s core, throwing the rocket off course and forcing an abort sequence just minutes into the Oct. 11 ascent. The Soyuz crew capsule was thrown clear of the rocket and made...

Turbulent video shows the moment a Russian rocket failed, sending two astronauts back to Earth

The Russian space agency Roscosmos released footage of the nearly-disastrous rocket launch that imperiled the lives of NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin on October 11. While the video is dramatic, it also proved the effectiveness of the Soyuz rocket's emergency abort system — which blasted the crew capsule away from the damaged launcher — ultimately allowing the two-person crew to parachute back down to Earth.  The footage, captured by a camera attached to the ...

Soyuz bounces back after failure: Crewed mission to Space Station launches early next month

The high profile but fortunately non-lethal failure of a crewed mission atop a Soyuz rocket in October has been investigated thoroughly enough that American, European, and Russian space agencies are willing to ride aboard the venerable launch system. Roscosmos announced that a crewed mission will fly to the International Space Station on December 3, less than two months after the anomaly. It was clear from the moment of the accident, from which Astronaut Nick Hague and Cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin ...
