Monument in honor of the rescue of the «Soyuz MS-10» crew
In Moscow, on the territory of the Roscosmos State Corporation office, there was a commemorative composition dedicated to the successful exit from an emergency situation of the crew of the Soyuz MS-10 manned spacecraft during launch on October 11, 2018. On board there was Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin and NASA astronaut Nick Hague, who, thanks to the emergency rescue rockets system, landed safely in the Kazakh steppe and went to the ISS in March 2019. The Commission concluded that the Soyuz-FG accident occurred as a result of the impact of one of the side blocks of the first stage on the second stage of the carrier at the separation stage: the block did not have a system of withdrawal away from the rocket due to the corresponding sensor bent during assembly at Baikonur. On that day, during the flight, due to an abnormal separation of the side block, the emergency rescue system undocked the ship from the launch vehicle, and the lander made a ballistic descent followed by landing 25 km east of the city of Dzhezkazgan. The crew was saved. The monument is a pedestal with a diameter of just over eight meters, on which the Soyuz MS lander with the factory number 740 will be installed. Behind it there is a wall on which the inscription “Descent vehicle of the Soyuz MS-10 manned transport vehicle” will have to be manually made. In the foreground there is a special board with the inscription “Soyuz MS-10 manned transport vehicle”. It was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on October 11, 2018 on a Soyuz FG carrier rocket. Crew: Commander Alexey Ovchinin (Russia) and flight engineer Nick Hague (USA). The call sign is “Boatmen”. During the launch, at the 114th second of the flight, the launch vehicle crashed due to an abnormal separation of the “D” block. An architectural composition dedicated to the successful exit from the emergency situation of the Soyuz MS-10 crew was opened on the territory of the Roscosmos State Corporation office in Moscow.
