Concrete block on your chest: Russian cosmonaut recounts failed space launch

Russia may resume manned space flights on November 28: Interfax Astronauts aboard ISS afraid of aborting space launch

When asked if there will be a delay on the launch, he said: "We don't have any confirmation yet".

The first launch since the accident may take place in Plesetsk starting from October 24 to 26, (it will be a) Soyuz-2 with a military satellite, according to reports citing sources.

The container of the Russian Soyuz MS-10 shuttle with Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and U.S. space explorer Nick Hague on board made a crisis arrival in Kazakhstan Thursday after the transporter rocket failed soon after lift-off.

Ovchinin, 47, said the steep reentry back to Earth put crushing force on the astronauts - like putting a "big concrete block on your chest that is seven times your weight".

Ovchinin said he and Hague understood something was wrong when emergency lights came on in the cabin. As per the Roscosmos' statement, the failure might have occurred due to the collision between the discarded first stage and the second stage of the rocket's booster. The crew landed safely in Kazakhstan's steppe.

Hague - the first American to experience a launch abort like this - communicated in Russian throughout the more than half-hour ordeal.

The failure "only helped to solidify my appreciation for how robust that system is", said Hague, 43, in an online question-and-answer session with reporters streamed by NASA. They knew that something was not right as they felt weightless when they should have been feeling pushed back in their seats.

Russian Federation had immediately issued a notice shortly after the incident, saying that they had suspended all the future manned space flights for now, and an investigation was on to figure out what went wrong with the Soyuz rocket. By that time, the Russian space agency expects that, they will be able to find the answers and resume the, now halted, space missions and launch schedules.

They flew to the orbit taking Russia's Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft that blasted off on June 6 and they are scheduled to stay onboard the space station for 187 days.
