It could be failure of signal transmission on a cable, the executive director of state corporation on the piloted programs Sergey Krikalev told on air of RT TV channel. The emergency resulted from collision of the first and second steps in the course of their office. "And the prime cause — there did not pass the signal on a cable that could occur for various reasons" — Krikalev told. He added that Roskosmos has the small number of data on accident of "Union" so far. As collision of two steps of the carrier rocket could lead to accident, the academician of the Russian academy of astronautics of Tsiolkovsky Alexander Zheleznyakov explains: Alexander Zheleznyakov the academician of the Russian academy of astronautics of Tsiolkovsky "The first step was hooked for bolts which held it, and one edge struck the second step. Orientation was broken. Farther in such situation if corners are exceeded, there is a shutdown of the engine of the second step, it is an emergency. And when engines of the second step are switched-off, the system of emergency rescue because it is clear that with the switched-off engine the rocket far will not depart already works". Roskosmos finds out only the technical reasons of an emergency situation. About "deliberate wrecking", according to Krikalev, "other people are engaged in versions". The version about sabotage is how plausible, the research supervisor of Institute of space policy Ivan Moiseyev comments: Ivan Moiseyev the research supervisor of Institute of space policy "About more than six thousand starts happened around the world, and deliberate wrecking was never recorded. So this version is extremely improbable". Results of work of the commission on accident of "Union" will present at the end of the next week, Sergey Krikalev said. He also reported that new start to the ISS will take place in the first of December. The same crew which was onboard the piloted Union of MS-10 ship during unsuccessful start on October 11 will go into orbit. For Russian Alexey Ovchinin emergency flight was the second in career, American Nick Haig flew to space for the first time. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
