3 astronauts back from space after 204 days

Jun 25, 2019 17:29 IST

Oleg Kononenko from Roscosmos, Anne McClain of NASA and Canadian Space Agency astronaut David Saint-Jacques landed aboard Russia's Soyuz capsule MS-11 spacecraft on June 24 after a three-hour flight from the orbiting lab. Lowered by parachute and slowed by braking thrusters, the capsule touched down on the steppes of Kazakhstan at 10:47 p.m. EDT. It was also observed that they landed less than a minute ahead of the schedule. The three astronauts are now under medical checks and will soon be ready to fly back to their homes.
