Soyuz TMA-5 reentry (NASA) A Soyuz capsule safely landed early Monday carrying three people from the International Space Station. The Soyuz TMA-5 spacecraft landed in north-central Kazakhstan, 85 kilometers from the town of Arkalyk, at 6:08 pm EDT (2208 GMT) Sunday. On board the Soyuz were Leroy Chiao and Salizhan Sharipov, the two members of the Expedition 10 crew who spent the last six and a half months on the ISS, as well as Italian astronaut Roberto Vittori, who flew to the ISS with the Expedition 11 crew earlier this month. All three were reported to be in good health. The landing took place a little less than three and a half hours after the Soyuz undocked from the ISS. Remaining on board the ISS is the Expedition 11 crew of Sergei Krikalev and John Phillips.
