Expedition Report

Launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

ISS Expedition 57 began with the undocking of spacecraft Soyuz MS-08 on October 04, 2018 at 07:57:30 UTC. The former Expedition 56 (Oleg Artemyev, Andrew Feustel and Richard Arnold) returned safely to Earth.

Aleksei Ovchinin and Nicholas Hague were scheduled to become members of the ISS expeditions 57 and 58. About 122 seconds after liftoff, Soyuz MS-10 went into contingency abort due to a booster failure and had to return to Earth into a "ballistic descent". Both crew members were recovered alive in good health. The Soyuz MS-10 flight abort was the first instance of a Russian manned booster accident at high altitude in 43 years, since Soyuz 18A similarly failed to make orbit in April 1975. Aleksei Ovchinin and Nicholas Hague had to protect 6.7g forces. Other sources say 8g).
