The first Canadian astronaut to command the International Space Station has touched down on Earth.
Chris Hadfield landed safely in Kazakhstan with two other crewmates – NASA astronaut Tom Marshburn and Russian cosmonaut Roman Romanenko.
They left the orbital outpost as it was sailing 410 kilometres above eastern Mongolia. Their journey, in a Soyuz capsule, took around three-and-a-half hours to complete.
The arrival of the space trio marks the end of a five-month mission.
