2 NASA Astronauts, 1 Russian Cosmonaut Return to Earth
Two astronauts from the US Space Agency (NASA) and a Russian cosmonaut landed Friday in Kazakhstan after months of being on the International Space Station (ISS).
Astronauts Andrew Morgan and Jessica Meir and Russian Space Agency Cosmonaut Roscosmos Oleg Skripochka left the ISS with the Soyuz MS-15 spacecraft Friday morning (17/4).
Three hours later, the three landed with parachutes on the steppes in Kazakshtan, outside the remote town of Dzhezkazgan. After a post-landing inspection, the three were flown by helicopter to the Russian Space Center in Baikonur.
Morgan's 272-day mission began on July 20, 2019, while Meir and Skripochka left Earth on September 25 last year.
