Los Angeles Times - - The World -

A Rus­sian Soyuz cap­sule car­ry­ing two cos­mo­nauts and an as­tro­naut who lived for six months on the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion touched down safely, but one day late, in the cloudy, cen­tral steppes of Kaza­khstan.

The home­com­ing of Amer­i­can as­tro­naut Tracy Cald­well-Dyson and Rus­sia’s Alexan­der Skvortsov and Mikhail Kornienko was de­layed af­ter tech­ni­cal glitches hin­dered the un­dock­ing of the space­craft. Af­ter be­ing hoisted out of the craft, the space trav­el­ers were placed into re­clin­ing chairs to help them re­cover from the change in grav­i­ta­tional pull af­ter spend­ing 176 days in space.

Amer­i­cans Doug Whee­lock and Shan­non Walker and Rus­sian cos­mo­naut Fy­o­dor Yurchikhin re­main aboard the space sta­tion.
