Without a proper cutoff command, propellant lines of the engine remained open, after it run out of fuel and stalled. As a result, the pressurization gas and remaining oxidizer continued escaping through the main nozzle and steering thrusters, causing the spacecraft to spin wildly. Although the engine was later cut off by a timer, the lack of delivered thrust also caused the flight control system to scrub the primary sequence for the separation between the reentry vehicle and the instrument module. Fortunately, a backup system did perform the separation some 10 minutes later, as temperature sensors detected the rising heat of reentry.
