The Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft carrying the crew of astronaut Nick Hague of the U.S. and cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin of Russia blasts off to the International Space Station (ISS) from the launchpad at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan. The two-man crew had to make a dramatic emergency landing when a rocket failed in mid-air, but they landed safely without harm and rescue crews quickly linked up with them, NASA, the U.S. space agency, and Russia's Roscosmos said. The Soyuz capsule carrying them separated from the malfunctioning rocket and made what is called a steep ballistic descent with parachutes helping slow its speed. Paratroopers parachuted to the rescue site, TASS news agency reported.
