The Soyuz spacecraft is seen as it lands in a remote area outside of the town of Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan, on Friday, Sept. 16. NASA Astronaut Ron Garan, Russian Cosmonauts Andrey Borisenko and Alexander Samokutyaev are returning from more than five months onboard the International Space Station where they served as members of the Expedition 27 and 28 crews.

According to NASA, “Russian recovery teams were on hand to help the crew exit the Soyuz vehicle and adjust to gravity after 164 days in space.”
