Soyuz TMA-2 landing A Soyuz spacecraft carrying two ISS crew members and a space tourist landed in Kazakhstan on Saturday. The Soyuz TMA-9 spacecraft landed safely on the Kazakh steppes at 8:31 am EDT (1231 GMT). On board the Soyuz were NASA astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin, who has spent over six months on the ISS. The third passenger on the Soyuz was space tourist Charles Simonyi, who spent just under two weeks in space as the fifth commercial passenger to visit the ISS. The landing was delayed a day, and the landing site shifted, because of flooding at the original site.
