After More Than 200 Days Stay, Astronauts To Return Earth From The ISS

After being there up at the ISS (International Space Station) for over 200 Days, 3 Expedition 59 astronauts are returning to Earth and the US space agency is live streaming their comeback journey. Anne McClain, the NASA astronaut; David Saint-Jacques, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut; and Oleg Kononenko, the Russian cosmonaut, left the space station on June 24 at 7:25 p.m. EST in a Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft, as reported by Space.com. Approximately after 3 and a half hour, the crew members will plunge down with the help of parachutes to Kazakhstan and, at around 10:47 p.m. EST, get to the southeast of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan. Their Earth-bound voyage will be live-streamed by the agency on its YouTube channel and NASA TV.

The 3 astronauts, at 3:30 p.m. EST, bid a bye to NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Nick Hague as well as Alexey Ovchinin, a Russian cosmonaut. The cover to the Soyuz is planned to shut at 4:10 p.m. EST. After the crew members get within the Soyuz rocket, the agency will begin live coverage of the undocking of the vessel at 7 p.m. EST—that is 25 Min prior to the Soyuz rocket is scheduled to depart the space station. The Soyuz rocket, after departs the space station, will carry on to circle Earth while traveling past from the space station for approximately 2 H and 30 Min before it blazes its engines and begin descending into the atmosphere of our planet.

Likewise, the expanding spaceflight ambitions of India now comprise a lasting existence in the orbit of the Earth. Recently, K Sivan, the ISRO Chief, divulged the intention to install a space station around 2030. It would be a comparatively small station wherein astronauts would reside only for 15–20 Days, however, that should be sufficient to enable microgravity experiments. Also, India won’t rely on other nations for assistance, Sivan said.
