VOSTOCHNY SPACEPORT, June 5. /TASS/. The return of the ISS crew is scheduled for June 11, Roscosmos chief Igor Komarov told the media.
"The ISS expedition 42-43 is returning to Earth on June 12," Komarov said.
Three crew members Russia’s Anton Shkaplerov, European Space Agency’s Samantha Cristoforetti and US astronaut Terry Virts are to return to Earth.
Earlier, a source in the space rocket industry mentioned June 11 as a likely return date.
Originally, the re-entry capsule was to bring back three ISS crewmembers on May 14. The loss of the Progress M-27M cargo vehicle at the end of April caused a postponement.
At the moment the ISS has a crew of six - Russia’s Anton Shkaplerov, Gennady Padalka and Mikhail Korniyenko, US astronauts Terry Virts and Scott Kelly and European space agency’s Samantha Cristoforetti.
