NASA astronaut Hague and Roscosmos' cosmnonaut Ovchinin lifted off as scheduled at 4:40 a.m. EDT Thursday from the Russia-leased Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

The Soyuz MS-10 launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 1:40 a.m. PT, but an issue with the booster forced NASA's Nick Hague and Russia's Aleksey Ovchinin to return to earth.

"The crewmembers of Expedition 57 will continue work on hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard the International Space Station, humanity's only permanently occupied microgravity laboratory", NASA officials said in a statement.

Russian and USA space officials said that the crew is heading for an emergency landing in Kazakhstan at an unspecified time.

'The capsule is returning via a ballistic descent, which is a sharper angle of landing compared to normal.




Russian news agencies reported that the crew had safely made an emergency landing and were in radio contact and that rescuers were en route to pick them up.

The Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft is seen moments after blastoff.

Search and rescue teams are in the air and heading towards the expected touchdown location, Nasa added.

The rocket is put into an emergency landing procedure in which the main module - holding all cargo and any astronauts on board - separates from the rocket early.
