The Russian space agency, Roskosmos, has published a footage of the Soyuz launcher crash that took place on October 11.

The camera mounted on the rocket showed the moment of a failed separation of the first and second stages.

The video was published on the agency's Facebook page.

As UNIAN reported earlier, a space capsule carrying a two-man Russian-American crew that malfunctioned after liftoff has landed safely in Kazakhstan October 11.

Russian cosmonaut Aleksei Ovchinin and U.S. astronaut Nick Hague returned to Earth in their Soyuz capsule for an emergency landing following a problem with the booster rocket shortly after a launch bound for the International Space Station (ISS), RFE/RL reported.

Both NASA and Roskosmos said the astronauts were in good condition after their capsule landed about 20 kilometers east of the Kazakh city of Zhezqazghan.

The crew had to return in "ballistic descent mode," NASA earlier said, which it explained was "a sharper angle of landing compared to normal."
