– Russian cosmonauts and astronauts from the United States and Canada have returned to Earth after having spent more than 200 days aboard the International Space Station.
Oleg Kononenko, the Russian space agency Rosemos Anne McClane of NASA and the astronaut of the Canadian space agency David Saint-Jacques, landed aboard the Soyuz MS-11 Russian ship Monday (June 24th). Parachute and slowed down by the brakes, the capsule touched southeast of the city of Jazkangan in the steppe of Kazakhstan at 22:47 EDT (0247 GMT or 8:47 local time on June 25).
The landing led to the closure of the 204-day crew mission, where Conneno, McClane, and St. Jacques serve the 58th and 58th and 59 crews of the expedition. The trio arrived in the Orbital Laboratory on December 3, 201
It takes about 3.5 hours between landing from the space station to landing in Kazakhstan, described as a roller coaster or washing machine – dynamic but accurate and highly choreographed process, "McClaren writes on Twitter about a week before returning home.EdT (2325 GMT) when their ship Soyuz MS-11 detached from the space station Poisk on schedule, left behind the astronaut Alexei Ovcinin of Roscosmos and NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Nick X. yesterday to begin an expedition 60.
A new three-member crew, including Alexander Skvortsov of Rococos, NASA astronaut Drew Morgan and Luke Parmitano of the European Space Agency, will be put on MC-13 soybean to the space station on July 20.
in Kazakhstan, Kononenko, McKlean and Saint-Jacques were welcomed by the Russian Reconnaissance Force, along with representatives and medical teams from NASA and the Canadian Space Agency. The three crews of the Soyuz MS-11 seemed in good mood when they began adjusting to gravity while undergoing brief medical examinations.

Kononenko added two more transitions of space to his previous three, including EVA for slicing and inspecting the site of pressure leakage in the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft
" We tried to fulfill all the tasks that we had married, "said Kononenko during a short ceremony change of command held on Sunday (23 June). on board the space station. "All the crew members participated in our space tracks, we all did a lot of experiments, we did a lot of repair work, and we were really happy to work together."
Expedition 58/59 was on Kononenko's fourth stop at the International Space Station. Now he has registered more than 737 days off the Earth, ranking him as the world's sixth most time spent in space. St. Jacques now holds the record for the longest space flight from a Canadian astronaut.
Departing from the landing site, Kononenko, McClane and Saint-Jacques will be transferred from the Russian helicopter to the Kazakhstan Karaganda for a reception ceremony before Cononenko leaves for Star City near Moscow, and McClain and Saint-Jacques board NASA Jet Jet Airplane Returns to Johnson Space Center in Houston
Soyuz MS-11 is the 57th Russian Soyuz ship to fly to the International Space Station. It has passed a total of 86.4 million miles (139 million kilometers) over 3264 orbits on Earth.
