Astronauts From the ISS Endure Hard Landing While Returning to Earth

Astronauts From the ISS Endure Hard Landing While Returning to Earth

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin are scheduled to reach Earth on October 11. As magical as space is, low Earth orbit is a risky place, and even the ISS isn't immune to dangers like cosmic radiation or micro-meteorite impacts.

The Soyuz MS-08 carrying Russia's Oleg Artemyev and NASA 's Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold touched down at 5.44 p.m.

NASA's statement comes after Roscosmos general director Dmitry Rogozin said the investigation has ruled out a manufacturing defect.

Intrigue continues about what - or who - punctured a hole in a Russian spacecraft that caused a small but potentially serious loss of pressure aboard the International Space Station in late August.

In a bid to have a manned presence in space, India is now planning to send an astronaut to the International Space Station (ISS) on a Russian spacecraft in 2022, according to Russian media outlet Sputnik. Rogozin said the commission's main line of inquiry was that the hole had been drilled deliberately, a position that has been voiced in the past.

Trump comments on Ford ‘appalling…cruel,’ Dianne Feinstein says
Keyser, a longtime friend of Ford's, was present at the small party where Ford was attacked, according to Ford's testimony before the Judiciary Committee.

And, now Nasa is trying to clamp down on the notion that the hole was intentional. Now, Russia deliberated that ISS hole was man-made.

Earlier the ISS hosted the usual emotional goodbyes as the returning trio left Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency, NASA's Serena Auñón-Chancellor and Roscosmos' Sergey Prokopyev waiting for the next three-person crew's arrival.

Three members of the Expedition 56 crew returned safely to Earth Thursday from the International Space Station, where they spent months providing hands-on support for scientific research in low-Earth orbit, working to keep the orbiting laboratory fully operational, and performing three spacewalks.

Nasa said on Wednesday (Oct 3) that they just don't know the reason yet.
