Touchdown! Soyuz space capsule lands on Earth


The Russian Soyuz space capsule carrying three members of the 31st expedition to the ISS has safely landed as planned on Sunday in Kazakhstan, bringing an end to their 193-day mission to the International Space Station.

­NASA astronaut Don Pettit, Russian Cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, and European Space Agency astronaut Andre Kuipers have finally returned to Earth. The crew, having sustained the descent and touched down without issue, are all in good spirits.

The Soyuz TMA-03M undocked from the ISS at 4:48 GMT and began its descent towards the Earth’s atmosphere.
