What can be more exciting than roaming about in the spirits of the universe, the void where you can find all that calmness and things to discover and explore. The same undaunted high spirit was seen on the faces of NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko and the spacecraft commander Sergey Volkov when they landed on the Earth on March 3, 2016 with a fiery plunge and settling to a touchdown on the grounds of Kazakhstan.
The crew members were on the International Space Station for duration of 340 days where they were studying over the long duration space flight on one’s body which might help in future to take flights to Mars. The members of the crew were in the Soyuz TMA-18M ferry ship which was released or undocked from Poisk module. These two spacecraft sailed above eastern Mongolia after which Expedition 46 crew sailed for Earth and left the Expedition 47 cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, British astronaut Timothy Peake and Commander Timothy Kopra.
The Soyuz TMA-18M was undocked from the space station around 3 hours ago, before it finally plunged onto the earth’s surface. It had 25 minutes of free fall up to to a height of 62 miles above the earth succeeded by 5 minutes of extreme heating and deceleration at four times the force of gravity. When the module reached the altitude of 7 miles, the module’s parachute unfurled into a large orange and white parachute which helped to touchdown.
