"Sensors of the reentry capsule registered that it suffered five hits during the landing. That is, the spacecraft hit the ground, bounced several times and rolled over. Now experts are studying the sensors built into the seats of each crew member to assess the specific overload on each of them. It was recorded that the short-term overload reached more than 10g," the source said.
A manned Soyuz mission to the ISS was aborted on Thursday over a rocket booster failure. The crew of two – a Russian cosmonaut and a NASA astronaut – made a safe emergency landing in their Soyuz capsule and were soon picked up by rescuers.
The incident became the first failure of a manned space launch in modern Russian history and prompted Roscosmos to set up a special commission to find out the causes of the failure.
