Astronauts make emergency landing after engine failure


An American and a Russian astronaut made an emergency landing Thursday after their rocket malfunctioned en route to the International Space Station.

NASA said its astronaut Nick Hague and Alexei Ovchinin, of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, were in good condition and out of the capsule that carried them back to Earth.

They landed east of the Kazakh city of Dzhezkazgan and will be taken to the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center outside of Moscow in Russia, NASA said.
