Soyuz TMA-14M before landing (NASA) A Soyuz spacecraft carrying one NASA astronaut and two Roscosmos cosmonauts departed the ISS and landed safely Wednesday night. The Soyuz TMA-14M spacecraft undocked from the ISS at 6:44 pm EDT (2244 GMT) and, after reentry, landed in Kazakhstan at 10:08 pm EDT (0208 GMT Thursday). A blackout of voice communications for several minutes around the time of reentry caused concern, but the crew reported no problems and were in good health after landing. The Soyuz returned NASA's Barry Wilmore and Russia's Alexander Samokutyaev and Elena Serova after 167 days in space. A new crew of three will launch in late March to join the three currently on the station.
