Russian officials have commented about the situation after the Russian rocket Soyuz had failed to take off, causing an emergency landing last week. Following this, the Russian team had suspended all kinds of take-offs until a period. Talking about the situation of the people at the International Space Station, the officials said that ISS has a sufficient amount of food and other supplies for another six months. It means the delay in space missions from Russia’s side would not impact the sustenance of the people at the ISS. It has to be noted, however, that there will be delays regarding transportation.
Three astronauts, one from Germany, one from America and one from Russia, were expected to make it back to the earth once the Soyuz rocket made it to the International Space Station. Now that the Soyuz is at some damage, these three astronauts will have to spend more time at the station. This may also have some implications in the overall expedition schedule, although nothing has been specified so far. The Russian officials, however, ensured that the reserves at the ISS are enough to provide the living environments for the current residents until the next Summer.
The problem that forced the emergency landing has not been identified yet, but the emergency landing did not have a severe impact on the astronauts either. However, Russia has launched a prolonged probe into the issue so that the cause can be found and fixed. Officials also added that the current situation would have impacts on the overall manned mission schedule of the country although the issue will be addressed as earlier as possible. Some sources have mentioned that the nearest flight from Russia would be happening on 28th of November this year.
