US, Russian astronauts land safely after rocket failure
"The launch failure marks an unprecedented mishap for the Russian space program, which has been dogged by a string of launch failures and other incidents." I really love anything about space exploration, it's just difficult to digest this statement.
Well, now we know the the emergency landing system system works in a REAL emergency. GREAT JOB ALL!
Space travel isn't for the faint of heart it's difficult, but it takes something like this to remind people of how perilous it really is because of how routine it's seemingly become
How is it that the United States of America does not have it's own manned spacecraft?
Very odd comments. Thank god the crew are alive and apparently safe.
Scary. But it's only a matter of time. The phrase "Rocket Science" did get invented in a stagnate and silent vacuum. Space travel is still risky...
How is it taking decades to develop a rocket engine in the U.S., when Russia is still using an old design? We shouldn't have to rely on anyone to get us to space. It's been 7 years since we retired the shuttle, and it seems like no progress on these engines.
Very happy the jettison system functioned properly, and they are both safe on Terra Firma.
"The launch failure marks an unprecedented mishap for the Russian space program, which has been dogged by a string of launch failures and other incidents."What is an unprecedented mishap...dogged by a string of failures"?
I have to give the Russians credit. Their technology may not be as advanced, but their safety record for space launches far exceeds that of the U.S.
