News video: Reports of Explosions After Russian Cargo Craft Vanishes

Russian space officials said they have lost track of a cargo spacecraft bound for the International Space Station, as other reports describe an explosion and the fall of debris, indicating the rocket and its payload have been lost.The Progress MS-04, launched from Kazakhstan, was scheduled to dock Saturday with the space station, bringing food and supplies.

Shortly after launch, however, both US and Russian authorities said the MS-04 was sending “inconsistent telemetry data.” Russian space program expert Anatoly Zak, who was live-tweeting the launch, said the anomaly could indicate something catastrophic for the ship.

Moreover, Russian state news agency RIA Novosti is confirming reports of an explosion and debris over the region of Tuva, which would correlate with the craft’s approximate position.

Roscosmos, Russia’s space agency, has so far only said the flight was disrupted. Credit: Twitter/Space_Station via Storyful.
