Cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin of Roscosmos, left, and astronaut Nick Hague of NASA, right, embrace their families after landing at the Krayniy Airport, Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018, in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. Hague and Ovchinin arrived from Dzhezkazgan after Russian search and recovery teams brought them from the Soyuz rocket emergency landing site. During the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft’s climb to orbit an anomaly occurred, resulting in an abort downrange. The crew was quickly recovered and is in good condition.
