Russia Describes the Reason Behind Soyuz Rocket Failure

Before some days, news flashed reporting an emergency landing of Soyuz, a Russian rocket. The astronauts landed rocket capsule shortly after launch last month. The investigation says the faulty sensor is responsible for the rocket’s emergency landing. Russians officials trust that the component got damaged during assembly. They wanted to know whether two other Soyuz rockets have flaws in them or not. Russia launched some additional inspections. Although the official report will roll out on Thursday, said a Russian official. Sergei Krikalev, the executive director of human-crewed missions for Russia’s space corporation Roscomos also stated regarding the failure. He told a sensor on board the rocket failed to signal the separation of the primary and secondary stages appropriately. As a result, one side of the missile fixed with rocket boosters did not split properly and clashed with the rocket.

The two crew members on the Soyuz safely landed on the surface from the aborted launch. Despite of that, they did experience extreme G-forces, up to 6.7 times normal Earth gravity. It was an unexpected 31-mile trip back to Earth. Nick Hauge, NASA’s astronaut, stated that both of them experienced feathery for a while after the breakdown. After some days of the accident, the Soyuz maker Roscomos proffered an explanation. The agency clarified that it seemed as though both of the rocket’s stages affected each other while splitting. Such a crash would have caused difficulties. However, Russia wanted an in-depth inquiry to figure out the reason behind collision. According to Russia’s news agency TASS, the findings are complete, and it appears a rogue sensor is liable.

Since the sensor failure caused a problem with the separation and eventually caused the collision that crippled the rocket. The positive thing here is that abort operation worked flawlessly, and the crew turned back in a single piece. After inquiry, Russia is planning to move up the next crewed launch from the first week of December. The move is to ensure a persistent human presence on the station. The space station can function automatically for some time. But unfortunately, if something goes wrong and no astronauts are on board to solve the problem, the station could become severely damaged or even lost. At the same time, NASA officials said they are confident about Russian inquiry, as well as Soyuz rocket and spacecraft.
