Wnen the strap on boosters separated at 2 minutes, 45 seconds into the flight, one failed to separate and push away properly. It impacted the second stage booster, causing a fuel tank to rupture and the rocket to lose attitude control. The flight was aborted and the crew landed safely. Because of insufficient altitude (45-50 km), Soyuz MS-10 is not classified as a space flight.
