KOROLYOV, Moscow Region, September 17 (Itar-Tass) — The three spacemen who completed their long-duration mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS) are currently on a homeward flight path. The descent module of the Soyuz TMA-04M is to land in Kazakhstani steppe at 06:52, Moscow time.
A controller at the Mission Control Center (MCC) here told Itar-Tass, "The flight of the Soyuz TMA-04M, which undocked from the ISS earlier on Monday, is proceeding in a standard mode. Gennady Padalka, Sergei Revin, and Joseph Acaba are feeling normally".
"Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, NASA astronaut Sunita Williams, and astronaut Akihiko Hoshide of the Japanese space agency JAXA, who are remaining aboard the ISS upon taking over the watch from the departees, will be awaiting the moment when the Soyuz descent module will land in Kazakhstan," the MCC controller pointed out.
The module is to land in an area located about 86 km north-west of the Kazakhstani city of Arkalyk.
