Moscow, June 25 – AIF-Moscow.
The capsule of the Soyuz MS-11 spaceship, in which Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, Canadian David Saint-Jacques and American Ann McClain are, landed in a steppe near the Kazakh city of Zhezkazgan.
Orbital adaptation. What do astronauts do on the ISS immediately after arrival?
The rescuers who arrived at the landing site took turns taking the expedition members from the apparatus, who had been on the International Space Station (ISS) for seven months.
According to RIA Novosti, the crew were seated in a chair for some time, so that they would become accustomed to earth gravity. After that, space suits were removed from the cosmonaut and astronauts in a medical tent.
Helicopters will deliver members of the expedition to Karaganda. Then Kononenko will fly to the airfield Chkalovsky, and Saint-Jacques and McClain – to Houston. They have to undergo rehabilitation after the flight.
Note that Kononenko, Saint-Jacques and McClain during the 59th expedition arrived on the ISS in December last year. The Russian cosmonaut led the expedition. On the eve of the space station was a change of crews. Kononenko transferred the command of the 60th expedition to the Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin. In addition to the Russians on the ISS are now Americans Nick Haig and Christina Cook.
