Soyuz TMA-13 landing (NASA) A Soyuz spacecraft carrying two ISS crew members and a space tourist returned to Earth early Wednesday in Kazakhstan. The Soyuz TMA-13 spacecraft touched down in southern Kazakhstan at 3:16 am EDT (0716 GMT), one day later than planned because of weather at the landing site. On board the Soyuz were Expedition 18 commander Mike Fincke and flight engineer Yury Lonchakov, who were returning from a six-month stay on the station, and commercial passenger Charles Simonyi, who flew to the station with the replacement crew last month. All three were reported to be in good health after the landing.
