It is developed to be structurally very safe. At any time since launch before return the mission can be interrupted" — he said in the special video devoted to accident. According to Battiston, "Union" can by means of various methods, "more or less fast", to influence overloads which are tested by astronauts and to interrupt a mission at any time. For descriptive reasons the head of the National Space Agency of Italy suggested to imagine what means to interrupt flight of a rocket which only departed from the launch pad when engines work with very strong acceleration and flight altitude is still very low. "You understand complexity of return of the capsule (with crew) which has to separate from the engine and land with a parachute. "Union" is created and developed for return under any conditions" — told Battiston.© the RIA Novosti / Press service of the Central Military District to Pass into an image bank In the ESA declared determination to help with investigation of accident of "Union" On Thursday there was an accident, the first in the history of modern Russia, in the piloted astronautics. The carrier rocket "Union-FG" could not bring the Union of MS-10 spaceship with new crew of the ISS to an orbit, but astronauts managed to be evacuated in the rescue capsule to Earth. Neither Russian Alexey Ovchinin, nor American Nick Haig suffered. Accident, perhaps, happened because one of four blocks of the first step of the carrier rocket did not separate in the set time and when it occurred, struck the central block. Failure of the pyro of system of cultivation of steps could become the reason of it, told sources of RIA Novosti. The situation is investigated by the special commission of Roskosmos. Before clarification of the reasons of state of emergency it is decided to suspend all piloted start-up to the International Space Station which are now carried out only from Baikonur Cosmodrome and only on Russian "Unions". The Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov hoped that NASA "with understanding will treat this situation".
