International Space Station crew arrive back on Earth

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.
