Soyuz crew in chilly return after 144 days in Space

Help

A Russian-American crew has safely returned to Earth after 144 days in space on a visit to the International Space Station.

NASA said the Soyuz capsule carrying America's Kevin Ford and Russians Oleg Novitsky and Evgeny Tarelkin almost hit its bull's eye target in thick fog in Kazakhstan.

The bad weather meant ten of the 12 helicopters sent to collect the men were unable to land, including the aircraft carrying an inflatable medical tent.
