Soyuz rocket carrying astronauts makes emergency landing
Soyuz rocket carrying a NASA astronaut and Russian cosmonaut made an emergency landing Thursday back on Earth after an issue with a booster, NASA said.
"Search and rescue teams are in contact with the crew and are en route to the landing location," NASA said. It's not yet clear where the rocket touched down.
NASA has not provided much detail about the failure, but confirmed in a tweet that there was a problem with booster separation. Dean later confirmed the anomaly during live commentary. During the live broadcast of the launch, narration from Mission Control suggested that the booster failed to separate from the Soyuz capsule.

Dont see an explosion.
That CGI of the rocket looks like "Gravity".
The launch appeared to be normal until around first stage separation, when the crew reported a “failure” with the booster and feeling weightlessness.
