Nearly immediately after reports came in that the October 11th Soyuz rocket launch had gone haywire, outlets were reporting that the problem happened during "staging", a process in which the rocket detaches spent boosters. The next mission to the space station, MS-11, will carry Russian Oleg Kononenko, American Anne McClain, and Canadian David Saint-Jacques. NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin aborted the mission safely.

The Commission Roscosmos said that the accident was caused deformation of the sensor separation that occurred because of the violation of technology in the Assembly of the rocket.

The next human space flight via the Russian Soyuz spacecraft is expected to launch on December 3, the Russian Space Agency, Roscosmos, announced on Thursday. NASA has denied this and the two space agencies are working to find the cause of the problem.Since the retirement of the space shuttle in 2011, the US has been relying on Russian Soyuz rockets, launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, to get astronauts to the Space Station.

"It was damaged during the assembling of the strap-on boosters with the core stage at the Baikonur Cosmodrome". But Russia's Roscosmos space agency said three other spacefliers - NASA's Anne McClain, Canada's David Saint-Jacques and Russia's Oleg Kononenko - would be launched to the station on December 3.

The quick return to flight will alleviate concerns about how well the ISS can function when understaffed or completely unstaffed.

This complete dependency should end relatively soon. Boeing and SpaceX are now working on Soyuz alternatives, but their spacecraft will not be ready for test flights until 2019.

Hague and Ovchinin will likely get to fly again before those two private spacecraft come online. The space capsule carrying the two men ripped away from the damaged rocket, then plunged back to Earth.
