NASA astronaut and 2 Russian cosmonauts return to Earth

Monday will start with a bang as three astronauts return to Earth from the International Space Station.

Seated in the capsule were returning station commander Shane Kimbrough of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Andrey Borisenko from Russian space agency Roscosmos. They will take approximately three and a half hours time to touch the surface of the earth.

"Peggy's skill and experience make her an incredible asset aboard the space station", NASA International Space Station Program Manager Kirk Shireman said.

After realising the cameras were rolling, Exelby let out a horrified gasp before continuing her script. Another commented on the original post sharing the video: "Thanks to Media Watch - she's been boned".

Georgia Tech graduate Shane Kimbrough is back here on Earth following a almost six-month stay on the International Space Station (ISS). If that spacewalk goes as planned, it should put her in third place for the most spacewalking time, behind retired astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria's 67 hours, 40 minutes. He changed some batteries and made some reparations on the outside of the space station. It seems that she is not satisfied with her record so far and is planning on staying for three more months at the International Space Station (ISS), surpassing her own numbers. Peggy is also an experienced astronaut who became the first female commander of the ISS back in the year 2008.

Two NASA astronauts working on the International Space Station managed to lose one of the four thermal shields that they were supposed to be installing as it simply floated away into space somewhere.

Whitson is expected to break the record on April 24. He is scheduled to launch to the space station again in September 2018 aboard Soyuz MS-10. Kimbrough and his colleagues are now all set to start their journey back home.

Their Soyuz capsule landed southeast of the remote town of Dzhezkazgan in Kazakhstan around 6:20 a.m. CDT (5:20 p.m. Kazakhstan time).

NASA plans to cover the entire departure and landing on its TV channel, starting with the astronauts' goodbyes after midnight.
