So the Russian astronaut Nikolay Ovchinin before the emergency landing of "Union" told. On Thursday, October 11, at noon over Kazakhstan there was an accident by the piloted ship to two astronauts onboard. American Nick Haig was the second. The capsule landed successfully. Astronauts already arrived to Baikonur and are hospitalized for inspection. According to a source of TASS, they will take off for Moscow on October 12 at 9 o'clock in the morning. It is known that accident happened in operating time of the second step. According to preliminary information, it switched-off engines. "Perhaps, because of bad fastening at office of blocks of the second step one of them could hook on the central block, than caused accident" — Interfax cites source words. The Investigative Committee opened case of violation of safety rules of construction works. What financial losses can this incident entail? Accident of "Union" is at least loss of 100 million dollars. Market price of a rocket of "Union" — 50 million dollars, and the ship costs about the same, experts say. But it not all. Flights will suspend now until causes of accident become clear. Just in the morning on Thursday shortly before there was an accident, Dmitry Rogozin declared on Twitter that the contract for the organization of flight to the ISS of the first astronaut from the UAE is signed. Flight has to take place in the spring. But now schedules can be moved up, as well as time of sending other astronauts for the ISS. Each of such flights costs from 50 to 80 million dollars. Plus still "Union" delivers freights, for example satellites. Whether Moscow risks to receive money because of failure of the program of flights now? The research supervisor of Institute of space policy Ivan Moiseyev answers: — No, I do not think that it considerably will affect. First, "Union" is several versions of a rocket. Most likely, the commission will understand quickly enough, for the piloted flights it is a delay in a month, it is possible in two. The shift of starts on time, even without any accidents, is, in general, a usual thing. — And force majeurs similar register in contracts? — How? Accident is always provided. But there any sanctions, any penalties are not provided. All this is considered at an insurance of starts. In general, there rather difficult contract, with many conditions, and all of them are rather different. This start was insured for 4,6 billion rubles. The Soglasiye insurance company called potential payment record. Growth of accident rate already increased the cost of insurance of the Russian space starts by 2,5 times. Possibly, now she still will grow up. The market reacts to success of starts, the vice-president of Ingosstrakh Alexander Podchufarov comments: — The contract standard, but the prices are different depending on market condition.
