A frame grab taken from video released by the Russian Space Agency (Roscosmos) showing a view from the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft carrying Fedor during an unsuccessful docking maneuver with the International Space Station today.

Russian flight controllers had told the ISS crew it appeared the problem that prevented automated docking was in the station and not the Soyuz spacecraft, NASA added.

However, once the ship got within 100 meters (109 yards) of the ISS, the capsule's automatic docking system apparently failed to stabilize the vessel. And Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, is in the process of testing out a new rocket design that will replace older computers and use an upgraded guidance systems.
