Two Russians return to Earth from space station

Moscow: An American astronaut and two Russians have returned to Earth six months after boarding the International Space Station.
The Soyuz space capsule, carrying NASA’s Kate Rubins and Russians Sergei Rizkov and Sergeikd Svelchkov, landed on the grasslands of Kazakhstan on Saturday at 0455 GMT (12:55 am EDT).
Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, said all three were feeling good after being taken out of the capsule and re-adapting to gravity.
The three arrived in an orbiting laboratory on October 14.
Currently, seven people are on board the ISS. NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hay and Russians Oleg Novitskiy and Pyotr Dubrov arrived on April 9th. Americans Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker, and Japan’s Soichi Noguchi boarded the SpaceX Crew Dragon Resilience, the first ISS docking under NASA’s commercial crew program, in November.
