Russia finally explains what went wrong with the Soyuz rocket
It's only been a few weeks since the Soyuz rocket launched by Russian space agency Roscosmos was forced to abort its launch shortly after takeoff. The two-man crew managed to make it back to Earth safely, but their planned journey to the International Space Station was obviously cut very short. Now, Russia believes it knows what happened.
A few days after the mishap, Roscosmos offered a possible explanation. The agency explained that it seemed as though two of the rocket's stages had impacted each other during separation. Such a collision would have certainly caused problems, but Russia wanted to do a deeper dive to figure out how such an accident was possible in the first place. Now, as Russian news agency TASS reports, the findings are complete and it seems a rogue sensor was to blame.
