I just stumbled on some pretty great photos from last week’s Soyuz TMA-21 spacecraft landing with Expedition 28 Commander Andrey Borisenko and Flight Engineers Ron Garan and Alexander Samokutyaev in a remote area outside the town of Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan. But we get more than just a photo of a capsule floating in the air. NASA provides images of the astronauts being removed from the spacecraft and calling loved ones from cell phones. Love it.
