Space Campus Union MS-06 landed in a remote area of Kazakhstan
On February 28, two NASA astronauts and a Russian cosmonaut returned to Earth after a 5-month mission to the ISS. Alexander Misurkin, Mark Vande Hay and Joe Aqaba touched sushi south-east of the city of Zhezkazgan.
All operations on the descent and landing went according to plan, and the crew members feel good. 40-year-old Misurkin transferred the command of the ISS to Anton Shkaplerov. Misurkin generally spent 334 days in orbit. A 50-year-old Aqaba and 51-year-old Vande Hay, who was in space for the first time, came out of the capsule.
Astronaut Joe Aqaba helps to get out of the Union capsule Americans left posts on Twitter all the time. For example, on Sunday Aqaba put a photo of his palms in which he “held” the Earth. NASA astronauts will be flown from Kazakhstan to Houston.
Shkaplerov, Scott Tingle (NASA) and Norishige Kanai (Japan) remained on the ISS. Soon Ricky Arnold, Andrew Fustel and Oleg Artemyev plan to join them.
NASA stopped its own launches at the station in 2011. However, they managed to increase the number of crew, but Russia has reduced in the framework of the economy. The MKS laboratory is a rare example of American and Russian international cooperation that began in 1998. Rotates around the Earth at a speed of 28,000 km / h.
