A Russian rocket ship was carring supplies to the international space station but something went wrong and it caused a explosion and Alexander Borisov, head of a the Choisky region in Russia's Altai province said, "The explosion was so strong that for 100 kilometers (60 miles) glass almost flew out of the windows.'' the ship was carrying 2.5 tons of supplies of oxygen, food, and fuel and lasted 325 seconds at the launch.
since the Russian rocket ship exploded the manger Mike Suffredini said “We are in a good position, and can go several months without a re-supply vehicle if necessary, due to the supplies delivered by the last shuttle flight,” but the program will be affected is still yet to be determined.

So much for the alleged perfect record of the Russian Soyuz and Progress spacecrafts. Still what to pay them out of the wazoo to take a ride to some space hotel?*

*just employing a little reverse NASA bash, to cut into the grain so prevalent here.

One must wonder though, how many Soyuz failures there really were.

Relax paper face,
Just because the sites motto is 'deny ignorance',
doesn't mean that there is no ignorance here. lol

On the contrary.... It's full of it.

I'm glad it wasn't a manned mission.
Jeez. O_o

It's a shame for our country

Not so long ago we lost the newest satellite and now the rocket...

And the news are still shouting how great the last avisalon (MAKS) was...
