KOROLEV (Moscow region), September 11 (Itar-Tass) - The rescuers came to the descent module of the piloted spaceship Soyuz and began the evacuation of the spacemen, who returned on the Earth.
“All spacemen are feeling well,” the Mission Control Centre told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The Soyuz descent capsule with three spacemen onboard has landed at 06:58 Moscow time (02:58 GMT) on Wednesday in the designated area not far from the Kazakh city of Zhezkazgan.
Russian cosmonauts Pavel Vinogradov, Aleksander Misurkin and US astronaut Christopher Cassidy, who returned to the Earth, had worked for more than 165 days on the orbit.
Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin, Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano and US astronaut Karen Nyberg are staying onboard the International Space Station (ISS). A next ISS crew will join them on the orbit on September 26.
