Watch: International Space Station crew returns to Earth

Watch as the Soyuz MS-24 crew returned safely from the International Space Station (ISS) to Earth on Saturday, 6 April.

The capsule carried Nasa astronaut Loral O’Hara, Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky, and spaceflight participant Marina Vasilevskaya of Belarus.

It landed outside Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan.

O’Hara had been in space for 204 days; Novitsky and Vasilevskaya were returning after travelling out on a mission on 23 March on the Soyuz-M25 spacecraft with Tracy C Dyson who will remain aboard the station for a six-month research mission.

The crew conducted a parachute-assisted landing on the steppe of Kazakhstan, southeast of the town of Dzhezkazgan, at 12:18pm local time on Saturday.

After landing, the three crew members were due to fly from the landing site to the recovery staging city of Karaganda, Kazakhstan via a helicopter.
