NASA astronauts return to Earth amid tensions between US, Russia in space

Russia Finds ISS Hole Made Deliberately Says Space Chief Dmitry Rogozin

At 13:51 the engines of Soyuz MS-08 will be turned on to slow down the spacecraft and send it into descent.

Chawla and six fellow crew members died when the space shuttle Columbia was destroyed during re-entry into the atmosphere on February 1, 2003.

The outspoken official also said Russian investigators believed a small hole that appeared in a Russian space craft docked at the orbiting station in August causing an air leak on the ISS had been made deliberately.

ISRO scientists and engineers have been working on the Gaganyaan spacecraft for the mission.

The International Space Station program is tentatively planning a spacewalk for November to examine the hole from the outside. Feustel has accumulated 61 hours and 48 minutes over nine career spacewalks, and ranks third overall among American astronauts.

Sputnik's launch isn't the only reason why October 4 is a red-letter day in space history: Today also marks the 14th anniversary of the SpaceShipOne flight that won the $10 million Ansari X Prize for private-sector spaceflight.

A crew of three - Roscosmos's Sergei Prokopiev, and United States and German astronauts Serena Aunon-Chancellor and Alexander Gerst - remains on the ISS.

This is Gerst's second stay aboard the space station and his first command.

Russian space agency Roscosmos immediately launched an investigation into the hole, and its chief official Dmitry Rogozin went on television days later to say it could have been the result of foul play either back on Earth or by astronauts in space.
