On December 3 last year, Soyuz boosters brought spacecraft and crew to ISS successfully launched into orbit. This is the first space transport of the Soyuz since the launch of the missile incident in October 2018.
On October 11, 2018, Soyuz rocket launchers were responsible for bringing Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft with two astronauts Alexei Ovchinin (Russia) and Nick Hague (USA) to ISS, having encountered problems during launch. from Baikonur space airport.
The incident occurred when the 1st and 2nd floors of the boosters separated immediately after being launched. The two astronauts made an emergency landing in the Zhezkazgan area, Central Kazakhstan and were lucky to escape.
This was the first serious missile launch that the Soyuz crew had encountered since 1983, when the crew escaped when the explosion occurred at the launch pad.
