ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst captured the aborted launch of the Soyuz MS-10 from the International Space Station and shared it on his social media channels saying: "Glad our friends are fine. Thanks to the rescue force of over 1000 search and rescue professionals! Today showed again what an amazing vehicle the #Soyuz is, to be able to save the crew from such a failure. Spaceflight is hard. And we must keep trying for the benefit of humankind."
