MOSCOW, March 12. /TASS/. The crew of the Soyuz TMA-14M spaceship who returned to the Earth from the International Space Station (ISS) early on Thursday are feeling well, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin wrote in his Twitter microblog.
"The situation is all right. The crew members were taken out of the reentry module. They are feeling well. Serova is better than others in terms of blood pressure," he wrote.
The Soyuz TMA-14M reentry module with a crew of Russian cosmonauts Alexander Samokutyayev and Yelena Serova and NASA astronaut Barry Wilmore has landed in Kazakhstan’s steppe some 146 kilometers southeast of the city of Dzhezkazgan at designated time. The crew’s mission onboard the ISS lasted for about 170 days.
The Soyuz TMA-14M undocked from the ISS at 01:44 a.m. Moscow time (22:44 GMT). Its crew fulfilled a number of works with Russia’s Progress cargo spacecraft, the European cargo spaceship ATV-5, which after undocking from the ISS was drowned in the Pacific in February. Also, they carried out a wide scientific program.
Samokutyayev and Maxim Surayev, a member of the previous ISS expedition, made a spacewalk under the program of the station’s Russian segment.
Four spacewalks were performed under the American program. Wilmore took part in all of them.
Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, US astronaut Terry Virts and European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti are staying at the ISS. Virts has taken over as the ISS commander from Wilmore.
The next expedition — Roscosmos (Russian Federal Space Agency) cosmonauts Gennady Padalka and Mikhail Kornienko and NASA astronaut Scott Kelly — will take off onboard a Soyuz TMA-16M spaceship from the Baikonur space center on March 27.
