ISS 61 Crew Landed.  Feb. 6 they have landed!

ISS 61 Crew Landed

The crew that was aboard the International Space Station has landed.  They have touched down in Kazakhstan!  All of them landed with big smiles.  It’s amazing.  They are picked up and sent for health checks. Congratulations and welcome home.

The Expedition 61 crew, including NASA astronaut Christina Koch, return to Earth aboard a Russian Soyuz.  Astronaut Christina is longest serving on ISS.  She has been on a record breaking mission.

With her were ESA’s astronaut Luca Parmitano and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov.

The crew was surrounded by snow on the ground but covered up well to keep warm. There were many NASA, ESA and Russian officials and medics to help them adjust to being on land. Hands were warmed up and blankets wrapped round them to keep warm.  Once they pass the medical tests the team will return to Esa, Nasa and Roscosmos in Russia.  Once home there will be another welcome.

In the Change of International Space Station Command Ceremony there was ESA’s astronaut Luca Parmitano. He handed over ISS command to Russian Cosmonaut Oleg Skripochka. Luca also sets a record.

It is a special day for the crew.  They have been together for some time but now they are home and return to their families.

Did you catch the landing?  Were you able to watch the live broadcasts?  Are you a space fan? It is fascinating to watch the touch down.  Is there a favourite scene you like?  Would you want to be an astronaut?
