U.S. astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts return from space together.

A U.S. astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts parachuted down from space. They were returning from the International Space Station. They landed in Kazakhstan after exiting their return spacecraft.

The International Space Station orbits 250 miles above Earth. They were aboard the space station for nearly six months. Three crew members are still aboard the space station.

One remaining member, Commander Peggy Whitson, will break the record for a U.S. astronaut being in space. She will break the 534-day record on April 24.
