“Launch of Russian Sojuz vessel failed due to sensory error”

On October 11, the launch of Russian Sojuz vessel, which belongs to the International Space Station, failed tragically and ended with emergency landing for two astronauts.

Now, the reports from Reuters news agencies show that the failure occurred due to a sensory error. The reports are quoted by Reuters on Wednesday.

The American Nick Hague and Russian Aleksej Ovtsjinin were going to the space station to make repairs. However, the trip was interrupted only minutes after the launch from the Bajkonur base in Kazakhstan.

The carrier chain failed, and Hague and Ovtsjinin were exposed to violent G forces as the trip back to the ground occurred at a far sharper angle than usual.
