really interesting to see these pictures and from what i understand we're the first channel to get these pictures to get this video i don't think so this is like the russian space agency i think the gave us something of exclusive access here you also because the head is the head of it was a new head. and you can see him right now talking to the american austrian and this is the russian cosmonaut sitting over there and we can see some tubes going up their sleeves and everything but the looks of it but it's not to be confused with it's like i think there be there blood pressure is being measured on these pictures and we have official confirmation that their condition is good that they're there well both of their pulse and their blood pressure is normal and this is this is what we're witnessing in this video and in these pictures having blood pressure measured but they look fine the chat they can to tell us
8:01 am
a bit about the guys who sit in the. flight engineer. yeah so nick. so this is nick. is talking to him he's forty three years of age he began colonel colonel of the of the u.s. forces and he joined the american space program back in twenty thirteen and two years later he finished his he finished his preparations and so now five years later since he began since he began his training he got shot at the may even flight well that's one hell of experience to go through and another person sitting right in front of them we're going to see him in a in a bit. of chain and the more experienced one he's forty seven i think yes he is so he's forty seven it's his second flight older. lisa ascribed his
8:02 am
copilot there if you like. very smart very intelligent hold his american they were dating i really well they were getting along pretty well actually i read something about what the said about each other for example he said that he they were both a bit on the silent side but their personalities matched very well that's what this guy to the left said about this guy alex here chin that you're looking at right now and it's so it's all isn't it again as modern aircraft pilot training it's incredibly unusual it's got to work as a team and these pictures i mean they should be a great relieve for the families of these of these guys because for example exist he has a wife and he recently had a kid he recently recently had a child so very very very young so with these pictures i can't even imagine how massive relief. it is just a month of you know as you're seeing these pictures we've got me to clue simply
8:03 am
first when you see the first time you're seeing them as well of the space pos the cosmos looks and goes in talking to both the gentlemen who sperry police safely made it back today we saw that multi-colored parachute coming down like a big white parachute with the orange circles on it that got them back down to earth we think with a g. force of around six seven maybe eight but it looks like no huge damage done of course a lot of scratching their heads no they're back at base there at baikonur and nasa as well because nasa relies on the soyuz technology to get people up and and supplies and says what went wrong here now for viewers just joining us then what is the latest in the gore you've been across as no for three well the latest about what went wrong you know about what went wrong so there are two versions both. with this rocket you have like three boosters. and both versions the. pin the blame on
8:04 am
the first post when a detached one version suggests that one of the more jewels of the booster detached right into the hull of the second booster and so the physical impact was the pressure to dropped to drop and something went wrong and nother version suggests that one of the modules of the first booster did nor detach in time was others did and so would kind they remain the dragging along with the rest of the rocket and also the most important bit here is according to the interior ministry of kazakstan it was the crew that make the call to abort the mission and return to earth in an emergency so overall even though this is so highly computer controlled there are so many senses and monitoring devices back at star city a base there is also going to be a final call it was like in a jet but with the pilot in charge there with a cosmonaut or are still in charge well probably probably that's how it is maybe
8:05 am
like in a plane world but i mean the simpler it is the better also this rocket the soyuz rocket it has a special module on top that is designated with just about dealing with the emergency situation like this which is responsible for the emergency come down like descent back to earth so and we talked to the cosmos direct me to the rigors in who you just saw on your screens a couple of minutes ago and he told us that today's situation proved the stream reliability of the system which well i guess every cloud has a silver lining right so there's that and so he himself flew to the. location where the capsule landed and so we could see obviously him talking to the crew which is will be taken to the star city which is just outside moscow which is the main control. which is a fair
8:06 am
a way away from baikonur you believe you may have trip itself a number of tubs of ours that take law that's all direct flight is about five hours i guess and when i saw that i'm going to be there for the for the forseeable hours they'll be there tomorrow probably probably probably so but since they don't need any emergency medical attention. there's nothing wrong with them well let me get your ear to the ground this is really taking all our coverage so far this afternoon thanks what should this is art international got reaction from the director of the wired risk analysis consultancy that also specializes on the space industry he told us what impact this launch failure might have on the shore media long term upcoming projects. is a big lesson. and just as they need to really assess what happened with this or why it fell and how they can prevent this from happening in the future no doubt. tests will be made to make sure this won't happen again not a lot of pressure i believe on us to make sure things like this don't happen given
8:07 am
the it was a man and it was a man and action which couldn't risk life so this is something that needs to take into consideration many other states as well learn from this as well to make sure it's not so it's yet to be seen what actually happened and what the thoughts were but as soon as they uncover that i think we'll be in a much better position next time we don't change what we're getting we're getting reports about already the investigation will look into the operations of the factory that produced the rockets and it will check all five similar rockets that are already there that have already been produced so my question really is how could this affect the launches the very the space programs of rochelle of the united states and since russia is the only country that is capable of sending people in orbit right now everything needs to be seen with science in school they're going to go through every procedure they're going to go through every manufacturing piece see what happened and. how do you know this from happening
8:08 am
again space is a front here that many of the superpowers are wanting to explore and wanting to make sure they have the best prestige for it so this not only i think. in terms of the technicals they may lose confidence in us. in the short term but if they do things do come around with a successful missions. this will boost your confidence in outer space missions for the cold winter just getting a line on this chris martin from the head of speaking to r.t. in fact the crew has landed everyone is alive here initial reaction to. this is very very good the worst thing that we can imagine is these crew members to have died in this case so i'm very happy that they have managed to come out of this . well and hopefully they'll learn from this experience that right now they need to calm and they need to make sure the families know about this in the first phase and bring them home safely so they can take their time to the next. the launch was
8:09 am
aborted just minutes after takeoff and when the booster rocket began to malfunction is just going to see these pictures unfold this is when it happened. all right and i cheated a. bit you can see it calmly that was dealt with when i knew there was a rock of failure just dealt with in a very rehearsed way rocket failure and then the emergency procedures come in it became apparent there was a serious technical issue that live feed of the launch was cut off it was reports started to emerge that the crew was attempting that emergency landing in their capsule both men made a swift return back to earth in a very steep trajectory steeper than normal we hear. these things slightly caught the moment but everything. were you saw that parachute coming but they were about
8:10 am
seven hundred kilometers from the base where they took off from baikonur and the two men already talking looking considering what they've been through the last three hours reasonably relaxed and talking to dimitri were goes in the head of ross cosmos the russian space agency let's go live now to deputy director of the space to main at the university college of london hello sir thanks for coming on short notice to talk to us when i'm so nasser already of course not relying so heavily on its partnership with russia because it's only really the soyuz craft that can get people and resources up to the describe in the instant as a problem with the booster separation though in simple terms what happens during that phase any boosters any rockets are they just describing in one two scientific way four of us. yes i try to out hello so when you have a launch you have usually the launches two or three stages in the first stage is
8:11 am
abuse that then separate to the second and third stage usually puts you in orbit and apparently there was a lack of propulsion from the initial booster or the second booster it's not clear to me so not enough energy to be able to orbit the capsule which condemned the astronauts to go back to worst on a ballistic trajectory and this was probably the tricky part it's extremely unusual that it's going to accident or incident happens on a user launcher they are one of the most reliable launchers worldwide so it's extremely rare and i think that one of the first times these publicized that this happens with a manned launcher this technology the soyuz technology has been around since the late fifty's and as long as i can remember and that's the sixty's it's been a pretty reliable over the years very reliable it's kind of a workhorse of the skies isn't it. it is absolutely there's almost two thousand
8:12 am
launchers of of so use and i believe there's about twenty or twenty five fed was out of the two thousand and four if you have arrived of better than ninety nine percent or so so it's extremely reliable and the launcher is man rated. the americans are reaching the international space station using the so use since twenty twelve and they consider it a stream iraq and that's of course off to the space shuttle project was was got rid of by america i wonder is this going to look more quickly at their own ways of getting their people up there all or not because they've always had a very successful productive partnership with russia along the way no matter what the politics has been on the space side of it you always hear that the guys i got on very well. indeed they're going to prove me well and they're true incident can asleep to reach the station they live together in international space station i mean regarding a few theory godless the different political hurdles between the two countries this
8:13 am
is extremely smooth but after the accident of the shuttle. in two thousand and one from property two thousand and two i don't remember precisely there was a decision that the program shuttle would be stopped in the access to the international station by the americans would be done through the russians so use but this is going to have an end because normally next year the dragon capsule which we launched by space x. will carry astronauts and most likely sometime in twenty nineteen and the all the capsule which is meant by boeing will do the same thing so we know that in the future of the americans will access the station with their own means and not any more which is so use why is soyuz being so reliable over this is this design hasn't changed much over the years obviously it's been updated updated updated over the decades but what's so good about its design that it's been so reliable only is. it's because it's designed to. be robust simple and mass produced very little
8:14 am
changes and less recently for navigation putting more electronics but basically i mean i'm talking about the capsule the capsule is very robust and the launcher by itself which in fact is the a slide transformation of the launcher who wronged you to go in you know sixty one is exactly the same is reliable is simple it's robust something which we may be there not to do in europe or in the united states on a particular launch of the series of production of use a huge interim to the us and well there you have it you can see how that turned out really well the u.s. space agencies issued a statement on today's instead as the flight engineer is american as we know nasa says it's monitoring the situation carefully adding that nasa is working closely with roscoe smalls to ensure the safe return of the crew the other guy the russian commander alexi of chin in the forty seven year old just give you
8:15 am
a profile on him he's the pilot engineer this flight would have been his second to the international stage station up there the i assess is first was in twenty sixteen that took ten years of preparation this is all work almost achieved in spent almost six months in space first time the other man the u.s. astronaut is forty three year old nick haig who's a u.s. air force colonel for him this was his maiden trip to space appointed as the team's flight engineer he was accepted to become an astronaut in twenty thirteen he completed his training two years later now understandably hugely tense time for friends family loved ones watching the launch it must be a supposed in the back of their head every time. the spouses the loved ones go up and carry on with the every day job is to speak to the wife of cosmonaut alexi of chinon only a supporter of those where you live coverage of the crash or liberal party or. stuff as you know them people are near the surface of a bus or order any number of governorships it is not her version when we.
8:16 am
look at every issue. you know you can train all the like. a professional astronaut cosmonaut and so much goes into it igor but how do you begin to train for it when you're of a family member i suppose you know when you it's like going to the services or anyone doing anything like that it's always about the head or supposed them for a wife or a spouse for a partner would be really tricky on the what we do know that the crew basically saved itself if i think it's pretty. pretty safe to say that as they made the call to abort the mission to detach the capsule and to to land. well i just want to talk a little bit more about the system that has that has worked really perfectly that has worked flawlessly automated always it manual the end of the day that's what i'm still trying to get although maybe maybe it's
8:17 am
a bit of both but musically thing well a person had to press the button and it was most likely the commander of this flight and that the russian cosmonaut is the more experienced of the two so basically this system in fact it has been it has been around since nine hundred sixty seven and i mean if it would be good if we could put some pictures of the rocket itself right now because then we would be able to actually show with this system but basically where it is on the very top of the rocket i mean so it's the little syrup on top of it that is the emergency module and right beneath it ok in the payload so they're in the payload behind keep it on the where is it going to go on that rocket again which is. our gallery let's put the pictures of the rocket back up should be so we can just lovely so the top bits where the cosmonauts say they were there at the top right above it right about the little the little narrow
8:18 am
tip is that emergency module. that is it and so and also the the orange bit that's the pay. load yeah that's the payload yeah ok and then we go down to the the rockets you're seeing the rocket you've got the black and the orange are they the bits we're talking about they didn't quite functional the orange bit didn't work on the ball the bit that's actually lit up if you like well what's what didn't work is what didn't work is we still up for the investigation to decide but apparently it's the very first stage where the engines i think and the rocket failure but when you look at it interesting little look it still looks to be functioning but of course it's all to do with technical parameters and if you're saying that the pressure drop till it seemed read reports some of the pilots are made the astronauts immediately knew that something wasn't quite right because when they should have felt it was being pressed in their chest they had a moment of being weightless. that's a bad sign indeed and so what this what this module is capable of doing and what it
8:19 am
really did it basically detach as it kind of pushes the capsule with the crew inside away from the faulty rocket that's what it does and so it pushes it aside and moves it sideways moves it away from the faulty rocket and then facilitate the safe return of the of the crew back on earth and this is what happened we talked to our to talk to the head of the russian space agency dmitry rogozin and he stressed that today's emergency showcase the reliability of that system which is frankly quite incredible given the fact that again it has been around since one thousand nine hundred sixty seven. that's a long time of saying there were nine hundred fifty seven is that when the project started up all in all its the emergency system though a lot of as your. projects would go a lot of them out you know even longer like a decade long with the first flight that was in one nine hundred fifty seven. and
8:20 am
then in one thousand nine hundred eighty one was of course the first manned flight into space and then in one thousand. sixty seven was introduced this system this emergency system for the safety of the crews and well there you have it as has all of course it's been updated all via sleep goes to india this year obviously this this but this particular modification has been around since two thousand and one. these kind of launches are always and you know the thought. it just goes with the territory that they are potentially risky you've been you've covered a cup of these launches yourself one of them when you're here when you're when you're starting so close to one of these things will be i mean how close are you with you know we often show them to our viewers it's very difficult things don't often come across on television quite like they do in real life do they describe what it is what it's like to be i mean how close are you to the launch when you're covering one of these things at the very early that actually feels like well at the very beginning of the launch we were a couple of kilometers away from it like maybe around five kilometers and but but
8:21 am
still this is the show was spectacular i should say because first you see the fumes and the flames and everything you just see you don't hear it because it takes well you know all of these things when you're when you're up close to one when you're up close well it's just normal since absolutely jane or most especially when it is being delivered to the launch pad when the massive trains i mean it's it's way it is in reality it's way bigger than it looks like on a t.v. screen but when it blasts off again first you see the fumes in the flames and all all that have a breaks loose and then you feel the sound waves you feel the impact it's like you just hear it you feel the the strike the porsche and then the ground starts trembling slightly even kilometers away the ground starts from blowing slightly and it's one hell of a show on just to look at it and to two hundred to realize that this thing is
8:22 am
taking people into space what it was village to be although we saw those pictures earlier on in the early stages of things big. to go wrong with all the pictures of u.s. troops shaking out over there was that when things started to go wrong probably was when things started to go wrong because everything is everything is of course. this is going to go it was amazing this is this is the moment and you can see some toys hanging in there and i mean it's not just an emotional it's not just sentimental value they have the indicators they're basically indicators when weightlessness in god so that's how that's how the crew since they're strapped tight that's how they know that the left and there's no atmosphere. for. his no where near to what the to what the experience on earth because the toys start floating around tied to you know wherever it was in the back of my head so
8:23 am
they needed a go thanks for that then i would like to. get back to some more of what may have gone wrong in other thoughts about another reaction maybe in from that's keep us posted throughout the afternoon thanks so the launch was aborted if you're joining us hi there this is art international that launch was aborted just minutes after takeoff when the booster rocket began to malfunction this is the mode start of the wind. well you. are right unless you did a. really good. when it became apparent that indeed there was a serious technical issue you could say calmly they dealt with those things that have engine failure the live feed of that launch was then cut soon afterwards reports started to emerge that the crew was attempting an emergency landing in their capsule both men on board swiftly made it back to earth although it was
8:24 am
a steeper than normal trajectory the scientists say but as we saw most graphically they're not in need of any medical attention they're looking pretty fit and well before those exclusive pictures and once the problem of the booster rocket was no one it was decided to abandon activating the second stage of the launch is out of the delicate and complex launch procedures are supposed to happen on the journey this crew was supposed to be making.
8:25 am
well a bit of a brief statement in from the u.s. space agency all that saying that about today's incident because of course the flight engineer is an american who's got a big involvement nasa saying it's monitoring the situation carefully adding that nasa is working closely with cosmos to ensure the safe return of the crew but we know they're back safely now so indeed that's a bit out of date now we've got the very first pictures of the crew since the emergency landing we can see the cosmonaut the astronaut doing pretty well as we showed before these exclusive pictures only through in the last hour it's believed
8:26 am
they have been sustained any serious injuries you can see the blood pressure.
