on Saturday three astronauts originating from the International Space Station returned safely to Earth by a Russian made spacecraft.
Gennady Padalka, the Russian cosmonaut who now holds the record of having spent the longest days in space, which makes his way back to Earth alongside ISS crewmates Aidyn Aimbetov of Kazakhstan and Andreas Mogensen of Denmark.
The three-man crew boarded the Soyuz TMA-16M space capsule, which safely touched down 90 miles southeast of Zhezkazgan in Kazakhstan. Commentators from NASA called the astronauts’ arrival a “bull’s-eye landing.”
“Landing has occurred,” a representative from Russia’s Roscosmos space agency said. “All is well.”
Padalka captained to the 44th expedition of the International Space Station.
He broke the record for the maximum number of days spent in space on June 28 when he came to his 879th day installed the orbital office. The previous record-holder Sergei Krikalev a Russian cosmonaut, logged a total of 803 days in space, which stood as the longest flight length of time for 10 years.
Padalka’s most late space mission begun on March 27 when Padalka and individual ISS-bound astronauts Scott Kelly of the United States and Mikhail Kornienko of Russia blasted off from Kazakhstan’s Baikonur cosmodrome. Space travel has stayed one of the few instances where Russia and the Western nations keep on participating with one another despite the discretionary repercussions caused by the Ukraine crisis.
Aimbetov and Mogensen both had a moderately short stay at the space station, having been launched into space in the Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft on Sept. 2 and coming to the orbital office two days after the fact on Sept. 4.
Mogensen, an astronaut from the European Space Agency (ESA) is perceived as the first Danish subject ever to go to the ISS.
Space travel has stayed one of the few instances where Russia and the Western nations keep on participating with one another despite the discretionary repercussions caused by the Ukraine crisis. On the other hand, the international space system has met several difficulties as of late.
Russia had instituted a brief ban on all space missions for close to three months taking after the disappointment of one of the country’s Progress vessel spacecraft in April.
Ground controllers lost contact with the disastrous spaceship moments after its launch, inevitably wrecking in the Earth’s atmosphere. This occasion constrained several astronauts why should scheduled make the journey back to Earth to spend an additional month on the International Space Station.
