This first post-shuttle era launch of a Progress cargo abruptly ended at about six minutes into the flight today when an engine anomaly prompted an engine shutdown, just before the third stage of the Soyuz rocket ignited. The rocket and ship crashed to Earth in eastern Russia, in a sparsely populated area in the Choisk region of the Republic of Altai. No injuries have been reported so far.

Sorry about that, comrades. For more click here from Universe Today.
