KAZAKHSTAN (WHNT) —  Coming home from the International Space Station, the Soyuz capsule returns to Earth.

Just over three hours after detaching from the International Space Station, the Soyuz capsule landed safely in Kazakhstan.

On board was one American astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts.

Their mission lasted almost five months, spending 144 days in space — all but two of them aboard the ISS.

In that time, the three orbited Earth 2,304 times and traveled almost 61-million miles.
