The Soyuz MS-24 spacecraft, carrying Russia’s Oleg Novitsky, NASA’s Loral O’Hara, and Marina Vasilevskaya of Belarus, landed southeast of the remote town of Dzhezkazgan at 12:17 p.m. Kazakh time (0717 GMT).

Remaining Russian Spac aboard the orbiting outpost are NASA astronauts Michael Barratt, Matthew Dominick, Tracy Dyson, and Jeannette Epps, along with Russian cosmonauts Nikolai Chub, Alexander Grebenkin, and Oleg Kononenko.

O’Hara arrived at the ISS on September 15, 2023, spending a total of 204 days there, according to NASA.

Novitsky and Vasilevskaya launched into space on March 23, two days later than originally planned. The launch of a  Russian Space Soyuz spacecraft carrying them and Dyson, scheduled for March 21, was aborted at the last minute due to a voltage drop in a power source, explained Yury Borisov, head of Russia’s space agency Roscosmos.

The delay led to a two-day, 34-orbit trip to the space station for the crew. If the launch had proceeded as planned, the journey would have been much shorter, requiring only two orbits.

Russian Space continues to rely on modified versions of Soviet-designed rockets for commercial satellites, as well as crews and cargo transport to the space station.
