KOROLYOV, Moscow Region, November 19 (Itar-Tass) — The Soyuz TMA-05M spaceship's descent module with three cosmonauts from among the ISS-32/33 mission crew landed in Kazakhstan steppe on Monday at 05:53, Moscow time, an official at the Mission Control Center has told Itar-Tass.
The capsule landed in the preplanned area, northeast of Arkalyk. A rescue- service plane picked up a signal of the module's transmitter immediately after the capusle emerged from plasma and tracked it to the landing site.
The returnees -- Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, American astronaut Sunita Williams, and Japanese astronaut Akihiko Hoshide -- have worked in orbit for more than 126 days.
Meanwhile specialists of the search-and-rescue groparties have begun to evacuate the cosmonauts from the capsule. The returnees' "state of health is satisfactory," the MCC official said.
