Soyuz returns crew from ISS
Posted: Sat, Sep 30, 2023, 3:21 PM ET (1921 GMT)
A Soyuz spacecraft landed in Kazakhstan this morning, wrapping up a record-setting mission for the three people on board. The Soyuz MS-23 spacecraft undocked from the International Space Station at 3:54 am EDT (0754 GMT) and landed in Kazakhstan at 7:17 am EDT (1117 GMT). On board were Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin and NASA astronaut Frank Rubio, who had spent 371 days in space. That marked a record for the longest mission to the ISS and, for Rubio, the longest spaceflight by a NASA astronaut. Their stay was extended by six months when the Soyuz they used to fly to the station last September suffered a coolant leak, requiring its replacement.
