Kazakhstan: Touching scenes as relatives welcome cosmonauts back to Baikonur

Emotions were running high on Thursday as relatives welcomed Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin and US astronaut Nick Hague back to Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan after they were forced to make an emergency landing after a booster on their Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft failed shortly after launch. Their capsule is believed to have landed 25 kilometres (15.5 miles) away from the city of Zhezqazghan in... Еще central Kazakhstan. They were picked up by a search and rescue team and returned to Baikonur. They were originally scheduled to return to Earth in April 2019.
