  • ISS Expedition 50 Lands in Kazakhstan After 173 Days in Space

    This is the moment that International crew members of Expedition 50 locked the hatch of their reentry capsule as they prepared to return back to the blue planet. Amazing footage of the final frontier was captured as Russian cosmonauts Andrei Borisenko and Sergei Ryzhikov and NASA Commander Robert Shane Kimbrough completed the process of undocking the capsule from the International Space Station, or ISS, and began the three and a hour journey back to terra firma. The ISS circles above our planet in Low Earth Orbit at a distance of about 250 miles above and can be seen with the naked eye. It is the largest artificial body in orbit and is joint initiative by the space programmes of the United States, Russia, Europe, Canada, and Japan built in order to study space and figure out how humans can live there. Borisenko, Ryzhikov, and Kimbrough successfully landed in Kazakhstan on Monday after undocking from the ISS and undertaking a 3 and a half hour journey back to earth after having spent a total of 173 days in space. All three space travelers are in good health and are being transported to their respective agencies for routine check-ups by medics as well as a small period of rehabilitation for returning to life with gravity. Expedition 50 concluded successfully, albeit with a bit of a bump, when the reentry capsule thumped down onto the wide open Kazakh steppe at around 10:20 GMT, raising quite a bit of dust as it collided with the surface of the earth.

  • Japanese tourists visit Baikonur launch pad ahead of Maezawa flight to ISS

    Japanese tourists, relatives, friends, and members of Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa's team visit the launchpad in Baikonur, Kazakhstan where a Russian Soyuz rocket launch will send Maezawa and his production assistant Yozo Hirano to the International Space Station, marking Russia's return to space tourism after a decade-long pause that saw the rise of competition from privately held US companies. Their journey aboard the three-person Soyuz spacecraft piloted by cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin will take just over six hours, capping a banner year that many have seen as a turning point for private space travel.
