MOSCOW, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) -- Russian Soyuz MS-06 spacecraft with three members of the International Space Station (ISS) crew successfully landed in Kazakhstan's steppe on Wednesday, the Russian State Space Corporation Roscosmos said.
It said in a statement that Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin and U.S. astronauts Mark Vande Hei and Joseph Acaba were feeling well after spending 168 days in the orbit.
During the stay at the ISS, the crew carried out an extensive program of scientific and applied research, and installed the various equipment which were delivered to the station by cargo spacecraft.
