Mission 36 to the ISS ends in success


Two Russians and an American are back on Earth after completing their missions on the International Space Station.

Touchdown was in Kazakhstan after 166 days in orbit, time that, said NASA’s Chris Cassidy, went by incdredibly fast.

He and teammates Pavel Vinogradov and Alexander Misurskin will not be doing anything fast for a while as they re-acclimatise to normality.

A Russian, Italian and American remain onboard as a skeleton crew until the next mission blasts off for the ISS on September 25th.

The ISS has been continually manned in orbit since 2000 by a multinational team of astronauts and space agencies.
