NASA to proceed with Soyuz launch despite recent rocket failure Russia may resume manned space flights on November 28: Interfax

Contact with a Soyuz rocket's Fregat upper stage was lost past year and in early-2017 payload delivery was said to be damaged on arrival.

Three Soyuz rocket launches will be conducted before the next manned Soyuz flight, the Roscosmos executive director stated at a press conference in the Yuri A. Gagarin State Scientific Research-and-Testing Cosmonaut Training Center.

The next manned flight of a Soyuz rocket to the International Space Station (ISS) could take place on November 28, Interfax news agency quoted a Russian space industry source on Saturday as saying.

Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin on Tuesday said the G-force during last week's emergency landing of the Soyuz spacecraft felt like a concrete block on his chest but he and NASA astronaut Nick Hague are now in "great" health.

A preliminary study indicates that one of the rocket's 4 strap-on booster elements failed to properly separate and hit the remaining portion of the main booster.

Hague said he first noticed "being shaken fairly violently side to side as that safety system pulled us away from the rocket".

When pressed for a window into his mind and what he was thinking in the moments following the rocket failure, Hague credits his training for keeping him focused on what needed to be done to make it back to land in one piece. They shook hands and cracked jokes.

Hague, 43, said he's dealt with in-flight emergencies during his Air Force career, but nothing like this.

The CEO of Singapore-based Equatorial Space Industries, Simon Gwozdz, told Khaleej Times that astronauts who are meant to go to the ISS soon should "expect some delays". "Sometimes you don't get a vote", Hague said.

Last week's Soyuz rocket failure was the first such rocket failure incident in Russia's recent history, and there is now no definitive information regarding the cause of the incident. A Russian accident investigation is continuing, with all crew launches to the space station on hold.
