The Soyuz TMA-14M spacecraft successfully landed in Kazakhstan. A three-member space crew returned to Earth just after sunrise Thursday in Kazakhstan, descending through a sun-splashed sky under an orange and white parachute before dipping through fog for a rocket-cushioned touchdown on the snowy steppes of Central Asia.
Soyuz TMA-14M commander Alexander Samokutyaev, flight engineer Elena Serova and NASA astronaut Butch Wilmore landed at about 0208 GMT Thursday (10:08 p.m. EDT), or around 8:08 a.m. local time in Kazakhstan. The trio concluded a 167-day mission on the International Space Station and appeared in good health and spirits after ground crews extracted them from the landing capsule.
