MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 13th October, 2018) Russia's Energia Rocket and Space Corporation (RSC Energia) has received telemetry data as well as materials from the video recorder from the Soyuz-FG launch vehicle, Russia's space agency Roscosmos said Thursday in a statement.

On Thursday, an accident occurred minutes after the liftoff of a Soyuz-FG launch vehicle carrying the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft with two new members of the International Space Station (ISS) crew on board.

An emergency escape capsule allowed the crew to return to Earth safely.
