The Soyuz MS-02 spacecraft undocked from the ISS’s Poisk module at 0757 GMT on 10 April, and having detached the other modules away from the crew module, it then reorientated itself heat-shield first, ready for its re-entry.

Having successfully survived this, the manned capsule landed using parachute and last-second rocket braking to touch down in Kazakhstan at 1120 GMT. The crew of NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough, and Russian cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Andrey Borisenko appeared to be well after their flight.
