Three ISS Astronauts Aboard Soyuz Spacecraft Land Safely in Kazakhstan

WASHINGTON The Soyuz capsule carrying three crew members of the International Space Station safely landed on time in Kazakhstan on Saturday.

Russian Fyodor Yurchijin and Americans Jack Fischer and Peggy Whitson, members of 52nd expedition to the ISS, touched ground at 7:21 am (0121 GMT) on Sunday in Kazakhstan, according to NASA.

Minutes after the spacecraft landed, the three astronauts underwent routine medical check-ups.

Whitson completed on Saturday a total of 665 days in space during her career, more than any other American astronaut.

Russian cosmonaut Sergey Riazanski (Roscosmos), American Randolph Bresnik (NASA) and Italian Paolo Nespoli (European Space Agency), remain on the ISS, to be joined by three others on Sept. 12.

The ISS, a 16-nation project representing an investment of more than $150 billion, currently comprises 14 permanent modules and orbits the Earth at a speed of more than 27,000 kph (16,800 mph).
