Two astronauts are alive after dramatically aborting their voyage to the International Space Station when their Russian Soyuz rocket malfunctioned while it carried them into orbit at 4,970mph.
American Nick Hague and Russian Aleksey Ovchinin were forced to abort their mission on the cusp of space, at an altitude of approximately 50km (164,000ft).
They landed safely in Kazakhstan after a 'ballistic re-entry', during which they experienced forces of up to 7G.
If I was an astronut I would much prefer a splashdown to a crashdown.
Russian ground landings always look a much more bumpy affair.
