According to CNN, Russian investigators determined why a Soyuz rocket failed during a recent launch. A commission that investigated the failure announced their findings during a news conference, stating that a damaged sensor led to a fault with a booster tank. Oleg Skorobogatov, who headed the commission, said abnormal separation of a booster damaged a sensor, which did not allow a lid to open for oxidizer tank's nozzle cover. Skorobogatov added that two blocks of a fuel tank collided, forcing the tank to depressurize, which made the rocket unstable.
