American Astronaut Returns From Space Station Via Kazakhstan

The U.S. does not have the capability to reach or return from the International Space Station


Three astronauts have returned safely to Earth after 127 days in space on the International Space Station. 

Expedition 33 Commander Sunita Williams of NASA and two colleagues landed yesterday in the pre-dawn dark of Arkalyk, Kazakhstan at 7:56 p.m. (7:56 a.m., Kazakhstan time). The astronauts looked relaxed and happy, despite the freezing 12oF (-11oC) as they were checked over by a medical team.
