KOROLYOV, Moscow Region, September 17 (Itar-Tass) — The descent module of the spaceship Soyuz TMA-04M with three cosmonauts from among the ISS-31/32 mission landed at 06:53, Moscow time, in Kazakhstan's steppe on Monday, a Mission Control Center controller told Itar-Tass.
The capsule landed in a pre-set area, to the northeast of Arkalyk. A rescue-service aircraft picked up the signal emitted by the USW transmitter of the descent module immediately after it emerged from plasma and tracked it to the landing site, the MCC controller said. The Russian cosmonauts Gennady Padalka and Sergei Revin and NASA astronaut Joseph Acaba have returned to Earth upon working in orbit for almost 125 days.
The search-and-rescue groups are on their way to the landing site of the descent module. Air temperature in the landing area is eleven degrees above zero (Celcius), the wind is gentle and the sky is cloudless.
