The crew of the International Space Station (ISS) have returned safely to Earth.

The Soyuz MS-24 crew touched back down on their home planet on Saturday 6 April.

It landed on the steppe of Kazakhstan, southeast of the town of Dzhezkazgan, at 12:18 local time.

Inside the capsule was NASA astronaut, Loral O’Hara, Roscosmos cosmonaut, Oleg Novitsky, and spaceflight participant, Marina Vasilevskaya, of Belarus.

O’Hara had been in space for an impressive 204 days – a period, which science says will have had considerable effects on the astronauts.

Meanwhile, Novitsky and Vasilevskaya embarked on a mission on 23 March on the Soyuz-M25 spacecraft.

And we’ve recently found out a lot about life and diet onboard ISS as well as their missions.

The trio had started their return journey to Earth as they undocked from the International Space Station in the Soyuz MS-24 spacecraft.

The crew left the Russian capsule in a parachute-assisted landing.

The three astronauts then flew to the recovery staging city of Karaganda, Kazakhstan via helicopter.

NASA astronauts Michael Barratt, Matthew Dominick, Tracy Dyson, and Jeannette Epps as well as Roscosmos cosmonauts Nikolai Chub, Alexander Grebenkin, and Oleg Kononenko make up Expedition 71.

The group will remain on the station until the fall of this year.

And, after they return, they will need some time to readjust, like this astronaut who set the record for the longest time in space and shared the hardest part of adjusting back to life on Earth.

Not only did he have to train before heading off on his mission, but perhaps more surprisingly, he also had to train when he returned to Earth.

It’s previously been revealed that astronauts come back from space as ‘different people’.

Muscle and eye health are affected as well as cognitive function and the effects of radiation.
