MOSCOW – An American astronaut and two Russians have returned to Earth after six months on the International Space Station.

A Soyuz space capsule carrying NASA’s Kate Rubins and Russians Sergei Ryzykov and Sergei Good-Sverkov landed on the steps of Kazakhstan at 0455 GMT (12:55 am EDT) on Saturday.

Dmitry Rokosin, head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, said the trio had been in poor health since the extraction from the capsule and had begun to regain gravitational pull.

The trio arrived at the lab on Oct. 14.

There are now seven people aboard the ISS: NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hey and Russians Oleg Novitsky and Pyotr Dubrov arrived on April 9; Americans Michael Hopkins, Victor Clover and Shannon Walker, and Sochi Nokuchi of Japan aboard the SpaceX Crew Dragon in November, the first ISS under NASA’s Business Group program.
