Soyuz, carrying Sunita Williams, lands in Kazakhstan
A Russian Soyuz capsule landed on the Kazakh steppe on Monday, delivering a trio of astronauts from a four-month stint on the International Space Station.

The Soyuz TMA-05M capsule, carrying Japanese astronaut Akihiko Hoshide, Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko and US astronaut Sunita Williams, parachuted through dark, cloudy skies and touched down at 7:56 a.m. local time (0156 GMT).

"We have landing!" footage from Russian Mission Control, broadcast by NASA TV and Russian state television, showed.

Search-and-recovery helicopters were on their way to the landing site, near the northern Kazakh town of Arkalyk.

The crew returned after spending 125 days aboard the International Space Station, a USD 100 billion research complex involving 15 countries and orbiting 240 miles (385 km) above Earth.
