Hague said he is disappointed to be back home instead of walking in space, but he's happy to be reunited with his wife and their two young sons, and is ready to fly again as soon as NASA gives him the word.

In an interview with Rossiya-24 television, Ovchinin described the huge G-forces the crew experienced.

After blasting into the sky from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, a problem with the separation of first and second stage booster rockets forced Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin to make a unsafe "ballistic re-entry" into Earth's atmosphere.

The spacecraft was on its way to the International Space Station when the emergency lights flashed in the cabin just minutes into the flight. This resulted in a part of the first stage of the booster hitting the second stage.

Trump says he’s not to blame if Republicans loses House
Trump said he will "handle it very well" if Democrats pursue investigations or impeachment should they take the House. Asked if it was appropriate to insult a woman's appearance, Trump responded, "You can take it any way you want".

The mission was aborted and the crew was rescued from a place near Baikonur, where the astronauts had made the emergency landing.

Responding to a question that was more in the initial reaction to system failure - fear or frustration, Hague said that initially "it was a painful realization - wow! - we have refused the accelerator" in admixture with "a little bit of doubt that it happened, because this was not 35 years".

Video from inside the capsule showed the two men being shaken around at the moment the failure on the Soyuz occurred, with their arms and legs flailing. "Were we going to end up landing in water?"

This means that while they will be able to return to Earth, if they do so there will be no crew aboard the station until another crew can be launched. "After the main chute opens, there is a valve that helps equalize us with the outside ambient air pressure and so you feel pressure changes in your ear on descent, just like you might feel in a commercial airliner coming in for landing", he said. "We have developed a sense of team that is necessary to deal with such incidents", said Hague. "Sometimes you don't get a vote", Hague told the Associated Press. A spacewalk to inspect a hole in the manned Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft's hull delayed from mid-November over the abortive launch of the Soyuz-FG carrier rocket is planned for December, Roscosmos Executive Director for Manned Programs Sergei Krikalyov said on Wednesday.
