The Soyuz TMA-08M spacecraft successfully returned to Earth at 0258 GMT on 11 September 2013 with its three crew of US astronaut Chris Cassidy and Russian cosmonauts Pavel Vinogfradov and Alexander Misurkin.  After atmospheric re-entry capsule landed after being braked by parachute and last second retrofire rockets near Dzhezkazgan, in Kazakhstan. The Soyuz TMA-08M spacecraft had earlier undocked from the Poisk module of the International Space Station (ISS) at 2335 GMT on 10 September 2013.  There are three astronauts left on the ISS for the next “expedition”  (Expedition 37) are Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikin, ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano and NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg.

Update:  While the landing went as planned, the crew altimeter display failed so they had no idea how far the landing sequence had gone.  The altimeter itself was working correctly and successfully triggered any necessary steps needed during the landing sequence.
