Soyuz spacecraft returns to Earth

Soyuz spacecraft returns to Earth

"This is the estimated re-entry time", the official said.

Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin (C), United States astronauts Jack Fischer (R) and Peggy Whitson pose shortly after landing the Russian Soyuz MS-04 space capsule in a remote area outside the town of Dzhezkazgan (Zhezkazgan), in Kazakhstan, on September 3, 2017.

"The crew is back on Earth safe and sound".

Whitson arrived to the International Space Station on November 17, 2016 and spent almost one year on the orbit. She has now spent a cumulative of 665 days in space, also a record for USA astronauts.

Whitson's 665 days off the planet - 288 days on this mission alone - exceeded the duration time of any other American astronaut, and any other woman astronaut worldwide.

NASA's Jack Fischer completed his rookie spaceflight accumulating 136 days in space aboard the ISS. The descent module of Russia's Soyuz MS-04 spacecraft with three people on board re-entered the earth's atmosphere on Sunday, a Russian Mission Control center official told TASS.




The Soyuz capsule has landed in Kazakhstan, on September 3, 2017.

Russian recovery crews, along with NASA flight surgeons and support personnel, quickly reached the spacecraft to help the returning crew members out of the cramped descent module as they begin their re-adjustment to the unfamiliar tug of gravity.

"The best thing is that after you have harvested for the science, he had to eat the rest!", she said his vegetables space. "NASA also attached the Cosmic Ray Energetics and Mass Investigation (ISS CREAM) on the outside of the space station in August, which is now observing cosmic rays coming from across the galaxy".

Bresnik and his Expedition 53 colleagues, Sergey Ryazanskiy of Roscosmos and Paolo Nespoli of ESA, remain onboard.

Whitson, a biochemist, set a breakneck pace on all three of her space station expeditions.
