Onboard during accident there were an astronaut Alexey Ovchinin and the astronaut Nick Haig. How will the incident affect the Russian space program? Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail of Fomichev/TASS After start from Baikonur Cosmodrome of the carrier rocket "Union-FG" to the Union of MS-10 ship there was an accident. Onboard there were an astronaut Alexey Ovchinin and the astronaut Nick Haig. They survived as they catapulted and were taken from the lander in good shape. Causes of accident are not established yet. It is supposed that one of blocks in the top part did not separate and struck with the lower part the second step. After its engine was abnormally switched off. The ship was divided into compartments and released a parachute with the capsule in which the crew safely went down on the earth. The Investigative Committee brought criminal case upon accident under the article "the violation of safety rules of construction works which entailed causing large damage". What consequences will this accident have for the Russian space program? The situation is commented by Georgy Bovt. The head of Roskosmos Dmitry Rogozin found in the history with crash of the spaceship good news. It is that the system of emergency rescue of crew worked brilliantly. By the way, such system of rescue created still by the Soviet chief designer Korolev was not by the American reusable Space Shuttle ships. Any more in this history there are no good news. In principle, it is not the first accident of such character with the Union ship though they were very rare. This device of the Soviet development of the 60th years of the last century is considered reliable. "Freshest", if I may say so, the case was in 1983 when the rocket exploded on start, but then astronauts Vladimir Titov and Gennady Strekalov successfully catapulted. And still earlier, on December 14, 1966, there was a similar situation on start: the fire on a rocket, explosion — and too the system of rescue worked. Accidents in astronautics happen, however present has distinct international and political aspect. Before examination causes of accident of flights to the ISS will not be. If the new crew is not brought to the ISS by the beginning of the next year, then with high probability of the ISS for the first time for many years will remain in general without crew. Meanwhile on identification of the reasons of the current accident can leave up to three months. This time the Samara Progress State Research and Production Space Centre where rocket blocks "Union-FG" are manufactured will undergo check. And still all have in memory a run high scandal connected with a hole in a covering of the previous Union spaceship docked to the ISS concerning which the head of Roskosmos Dmitry Rogozin managed to make a number of scandalous statements, hinting that the hole was done by someone from crew of the ISS. And still earlier he threatened Americans: if those are zealous with the anti-Russian sanctions, they should send to space of astronauts from a trampoline. By the way, it is necessary to return present crew of the ISS on the earth just by means of that "Union-9" in which covering the hole is found.
