Space­men re­turn safely

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

A Rus­sian Soyuz space cap­sule has landed in Kaza­khstan, bring­ing three as­tro­nauts from the US, Ja­pan and Rus­sia back to Earth from a 115-day mis­sion aboard the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion. The land­ing took place yes­ter­day morn­ing near Dzhezkaz­gan on the tree­less Cen­tral Asian steppes. The cap­sule landed as sched­uled and was closely tracked by heli­copters as it wafted through partly cloudy skies un­der a para­chute marked in red and white con­cen­tric cir­cles (pic­tured).
