Two astronauts kept ice cool as their rocket travelling at thousands of miles an hour malfunctioned on the edge of space while carrying them to the International Space Station, cockpit audio reveals. Russian Aleksey Ovchinin and American Nick Hague made it back to Earth alive this morning after the booster on their Soyuz rocket broke at 164,000 feet and the rocket automatically turned back during a dramatic 7G ´ballistic re-entry´. Ovchinin retained an enviable sang-froid as he realised what was happening, after they were rocked violently around in their seats by the force of the booster malfunction. ´An accident with

Comments:
Sabotage suspected? Are Muslims working on the Rooskie rockets?

Ancient rocket design, about 60 years old, normally pretty reliable.

Good that astronauts are safe.

Whatever the cause, whatever the results of the investigation, the courage and professionalism of the two astronauts is bracing.

My hat´s off to both of them.

The technology is old as dirt, but the darn thing works. Never break or fix something that has performed well up to this point.

I am not sure however about the maintenance procedures. Are they using reconditioned parts and that was the failure mechanism, a new deceleration rocket, a bad gimbal, or maybe they changed the recovery software. Lots of things to look at.

The Russians are not very forth coming about details on their mistakes.

We really need a new vehical to take our astronauts to the ISS. We need to increase NASA´s budget to about $18 billion dollars. I mean we need a wall for immigration protection, we need a real budget for our space program, and a realistic budget for our military.

All other agencies need a good budget house cleaning.

Let Virgin or Elon Musk fly people to the moon or Mars or wherever. If there is value in space ventures, the American way is to let private enterprise take the risks and earn the rewards. Enthusiasts are free to buy stocks rather than invest tax (and publicly borrowed) money.

Since we now use Russia as our Uber, with no change in sight, shouldn´t we start referring to our guys as "cosmonauts"?

NASA ended up becoming just another government agency. So much for the right stuff. Loose tiles, brittle O-rings equals lots of dead Americans. At least the Russians saved a few this time.

#1, Gagarin flew in the Vostok capsule on the Vostok-K rocket in 1961. The Soyuz is a slightly improved version of teh Vostok, first flown in 1966. They are very similar, ancient designs.

I thought it had a leak a few weeks ago from space junk or did the hole have a more earthly origin? THen later they were saying the Soyuz was damaged on the ground by a drill not orbital debris. A criminal probe sounds warranted.

If the liberal consensus was correct about nationalism, world order, and Europe, Czechs and Slovaks would today be preparing for war. Instead, they are — quite literally — celebrating the 25th anniversary of their “Velvet Divorce,” which created two new nations among two peoples who did not get along for decades. More than just another example of empirical evidence running counter to conventional wisdom, this circumstance illuminates a much larger misunderstanding of human history, one that explains why the European Union will not survive. Discussions of Europe assume that its past was directed — and then damned —

The top Treasury Department employee who was arrested and charged by federal authorities with leaking confidential financial documents pertaining to former Trump officials was apprehended with a flash drive containing the allegedly pilfered information in her hand, prosecutors said Wednesday. The dramatic arrest late Tuesday came on the heels of other high-profile, leak-related prosecutions under the Trump administration, which has pledged to go on the offensive against leakers that the president has called "traitors and cowards."

Nineteen people were killed and at least 40 were injured in a gun and bomb rampage at a school in Crimea today.

Another pupil died in hospital hours later as seven fight for their lives.

We all know that the Kavanaugh nomination fight is not about politics. How do we know? Nancy Pelosi says so.

Colorado officials released video Monday showing the moment a man who was fatally shot by police opened his truck door and pointed a handgun at deputies during an August traffic stop. The Douglas County Sheriff´s Office said the incident happened Aug. 31, when a vehicle was pulled over on Highway 85 in Sedalia, located about 20 miles south of Denver. Deputies were reportedly trying to figure out if a passenger had a restraining order against the driver of the vehicle. But the passenger, 61-year-old Paul Askins, was uncooperative, didn´t provide his legal name or date of birth, and when asked

The cryptocurrency bear market plumbed a fresh 10-month low on Monday as Bitcoin’s biggest rival tumbled and U.S. regulators suspended trading in two securities linked to digital assets. Ether, the second-largest virtual currency, slumped 11 percent from its level at 5 p.m. New York time on Friday, according to Bloomberg composite pricing. Bitcoin declined 2.4 percent, while the market capitalization of digital assets tracked by CoinMarketCap.com shrank to about $197 billion -- down almost $640 billion from its January peak. Cryptocurrencies have declined for five of the past six weeks amid concern that a broader adoption of digital assets will take longer

Why would any major corporation intentionally stake out a branding position that is adverse to their financial interests?

The 18th of March 2018, was the day tech insiders had been dreading. That night, a new moon added almost no light to a poorly lit four-lane road in Tempe, Arizona, as a specially adapted Uber Volvo XC90 detected an object ahead. Part of the modern gold rush to develop self-driving vehicles, the SUV had been driving autonomously, with no input from its human backup driver, for 19 minutes. An array of radar and light-emitting lidar sensors allowed onboard algorithms to calculate that, given their host vehicle’s steady speed of 43mph,

This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton. She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power

San Francisco - Cow´s milk is allegedly a symbol used by white supremacists, according to PETA. In a recent statement, the animal advocate organization explains that dairy milk has been the drink of choice for supremacists because "the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings." According to PETA, "some people might be surprised to learn that cows used by the dairy industry are slaughtered after about five years because their bodies are so spent from being kept constantly pregnant."

TAPACHULA, MEXICO -- A growing caravan of roughly 7,000 Central American immigrants continued its trek toward the United States on Sunday, blowing past Mexican police and immigration officials. The group, which has swelled in size in recent days, set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. It arrived in the afternoon in the city of Tapachula, more than 20 miles away. The migrants, nearly all from the poor and violent nation of Honduras, posed a growing political and humanitarian calamity for Mexico,

Every big U.S. election is interesting, but the coming midterms are fascinating for a reason most commentators forget to mention: The Democrats have no issues. The economy is booming and America’s international position is strong. In foreign affairs, the U.S. has remembered in the nick of time what Machiavelli advised princes five centuries ago: Don’t seek to be loved, seek to be feared. The contrast with the Obama years must be painful for any honest leftist.
