    Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin, in an exclusive RT interview, speaks about the failed liftoff of the Soyuz MS-10.

    On October 11, an accident occurred minutes after the liftoff of a Soyuz-FG launch vehicle carrying the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft with two new would-be crew members of the International Space Station on board. An emergency escape capsule allowed the pair to return to Earth safely.
