Back to Earth: Soyuz capsule with Russian crew behind first space movie successfully lands in Kazakhstan

The return capsule carrying Russian actress Yulia Peresild and filmmaker Klim Shipenko, the first people to conduct location shooting for a movie in space, has successfully landed, the space agency Roscosmos has reported.

The Soyuz MS-18 spaceship piloted by cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky has delivered him and the two members of the pioneering film crew back from the International Space Station (ISS).

The capsule reentered the atmosphere and parachuted down in a remote region of Kazakhstan's steppe. The crew members are said to be in good condition after the touchdown.
