KOROLEV (Moscow Region), September 7. /TASS/. The crew members that returned from the International Space Station (ISS) to Earth have been successfully evacuated from the Soyuz TMA-20M spacecraft, the Mission Control Center in the Moscow Region said on Wednesday.
Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin was evacuated first, followed by US astronaut Jeffrey Williams and Russian cosmonaut Oleg Skripochka.
The capsule with three ISS crewmembers has earlier landed in 148 kilometers to the south-east of the city of Jezkazgan in Kazakhstan.
Ovchinin, Skripochka and Williams went to the orbit on March 19 and spent 172 days in space. This was the first space flight for Ovchinin, second for Skripochka and fourth for Williams. Until the next Soyuz comes, Russian cosmonaut Anatoli Ivanishin, Japanese astronaut Takuya Onishi and US astronaut Kathleen Rubins will stay on the ISS.
The next Soyuz spacecraft will fly to the ISS on September 23. It will take Russian cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Andrei Borisenko, and US astronaut Robert S. Kimbraugh to space.
