Last evening at 11:10, EDT, the Soyuz TMA-07M landed safely in Kazakhstan.
The three astronauts of Expedition 34 had been at the International Space Station. I’ll call it ISS.
They had been delayed in leaving the ISS because of very bad weather in Kazakhstan.
The weather last evening had low clouds and fog. Not ideal, but it was acceptable.
It wasn’t announced that the Landing has taken place until the ground team saw the Soyuz TMA-07M. The Soyuz had a beacon and GPS on it, but seeing for oneself is believing.
