BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – On-board camera footage released by Roscosmos on Thursday shows the moment a booster on the Soyuz MS-10 failed on 10 October, forcing the crew to abort their flight to the ISS less than two minutes after launch.

The crew, comprising Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin and US astronaut Nick Hague, performed an emergency landing on the Kazakh steppe.

The Roscosmos Accident Commission held a press conference in Star City in the Moscow Region on Thursday, during which it stated that a faulty sensor was behind the failed launch.

It is believed the sensor was damaged during assembly. Additional checks have been introduced.
